Visit to the Ancient Citadel of Histria
Visit to the Ancient Citadel of Histria

The ancient city of Histria is situated about 34 miles (56 kilometers) north of Constanta and it was founded in 656 BC by Greek colonists from Miletus, who bravely ventured to the western shore of the Black Sea in search of new opportunities and markets. They set up a trading colony in a cozy gulf backed by abundant fisheries and fertile hinterland which would produce an abundance of cereals for them. Their gulf became gradually separated from the sea by a cordon of sand and it slowly turned into a lagoon.
This would eventually lead to the fall of Histria in the early 7th century AD. There was easy access from Histria north across the Danube into the kingdom of Dacia so commerce with the locals flourished quickly. The city was active and populated for 1300 years without pause, in spite of several invasions and natural disasters and that’s where its importance lies. You may see here a variety of city walls from the Hellenistic, early Roman and late Roman period, the remains of public buildings and baths, secular basilicas, ruins of Christian churches, ruins of shops and workshops, a.m.o. It is considered the Romanian Pompeii because of the abundance of archaeological relics spanning 1300 years and the condition of the archaeological layers which can be traced back to Antiquity. The museum beside the ruins, displays a unique collection of highly valuable archaeological discoveries from the area. After your visit of Histria you will return to Constanta to see the mesmerizing Folk Art Museum which helps connect the ancient past to the local traditions and customs by introducing you to the life-style of the Romanian farmer.

Visit to Tropaeum Traiani
Visit to Tropaeum Traiani

One of the most important and imposing ancient monuments in Romania is “Tropaeum Trajani” which dates back to 109 AD. It was built by Emperor Trajan, the conqueror of Dacia, following the two fierce wars fought with our ancestors, the Dacians. Together with Trajan’s Column in Rome, they represent the birth-certificates of the Romanian people, attesting to the Dacian and Roman roots of it.
This unique monument was decorated originally with 54 metopas (bas-reliefs) representing a variety of scenes from the Roman campaigns in the Danube area, 49 of which are still available in the nearby museum. The sheer size and technical mastery of the monument recommend it as a unique landmark of essential importance to the people of Romania. The museum of the monument displays the original parts of the reconstructed monument, most of the metopas, the original ornamental statues and other valuable relics found in the area. Prior to leaving for the monument you will have the opportunity to see the Folk Art Museum, one of the best of its kind in this part of Europe and get insight into the Romanian rural life-style and culture.
