yeah that's hometown Constanta for sure , not much to see in the old city or anywhere else in the city for that matter. I know you said you don't like mass tourism but you wouldof liked Mamaia for sure , at least for the atmosphere and the views from the suspended gondola ride
ps: did you taste our Schaorma in the old city?

OMG, there are so many old buildings in such a terrible state of disrepair (in ruins actually). What a pity. In other Romanian cities I have seen in pictures this seems less extreme.

Indeed Constanta is the city in Romania I saw where the historic center is in the worst condition. I have no idea why they let their old town fall in ruins as Constanta should be a relatively wealthy city.

I am actually quite familiar with Constanta because I've lived there for a few months. Constanta does not have an old town in the true sense of the word because 150 years ago it was just a small fishermen village (4000 inhabitants). Constanta grew only after the harbor and a bridge across Danube were built (today it has 400,000 inhabitants). Therefore the 'old town' consists of just two parallel streets close to the harbor and an 1 sq km area called 'Peninsula'.

The two streets mentioned above are in a better shape because they are in a commercial area. The Peninsula on the other hand is half residential and the ownership of the buildings has been disputed for more than one decade, hence many of them are left in disrepair until the legal owner is found. This situation is not unique in Romania - it stems from the restitutio ad integrum rule applied here, which has led to lengthy trials and corruption.

Anyway, the rest of the city was build by the communists, quite a merry bunch of them I should say. Constanta was a happy place back then and still is right now, the photos of the buildings won't capture the feeling, it is hard to do this city justice. Even so, it is hard for me to understand how Malyan missed pretty much all the representative buildings from Peninsula, since the area is so small.

Some of these pics can be mistaken for southern Italy (Naples).

malyan i saw a few shots of the touristic port from distance , you didn't go down there? it's like the only nice place we got in the old part , well that and the casino promenade
ps: Shaorma or Schaorma and Kebab it's probably the most representative food to eat when you go out in Constanta and very popular in all the country , it's from our Turkish neighbours left from when the city was part of the ottoman empire but adapted to our needs (type of meat , size etc). There is a street full of these restaurant shops which you were on based on you're pictures , near the statue of the she-Wolf feeding Romulus and Remus , if you missed out on this dish you have to try it next time you are in Romania -
it looks something like this

I was looking for the casino promenade for more than two hours which was really strange because I knew that the old town is very small and that I must have been very close to it several times, but as I still couldnīt find it after two hours of searching with temperatures around 35 degrees Celsius, I gave up...
Schaorma looks delicious, but I first would have to find a vegan version of it
