MAMAIA (CONSTANTA, ROMANIA)

Mamaia is the largest Romanian resort on the Black Sea coast. It is located about 3 mi (5 km) north of Constanta City on a stretch of land a few miles long that separates Lake Suitghiol from the Black Sea. The climate is mild and the annual average temperature is about F°51 (C°11). In July, the temperature raises to about F°73 (C°23) and in January to F°32 (C°0). The resort was officially open in 1906. Currently, it can accommodate about 20 000 visitors in more than 64 hotels.

Mamaia has a 5 mi (8km) long by about 100m (yards) wide beach with most of the hotels located in close proximity or directly on the beach. The resort has tennis courts, mini golf, an outdoor theatre and hosts every year the Mamaia Music Festival.

Lake Siutghiol is the perfect place for water sports or cruises to the nearby Ovidiu Island, the place where many believe the great Roman poet Publius Ovidius Naso was buried. Another great place to visit is The Vacation Village. Here you can have fun in one of the rides, can buy souvenirs or dine at one of the twenty or so restaurants with dishes specific to various country regions.

We hope you are going to enjoy your stay in Mamaia and wish you a great vacation!

It seems to be quite OK now, but I still prefer the Adriatic coast in Montenegro & Croatia - also it's actually closer to Timisoara :D !

IMO Mamaia is way too expensive for what it has to offer (like the whole Romanian coast for that matter).

Let`s remind you that we will have soon two interesting international competitions in Mamaia :

AERO GP WORLD AIR RACING COMPETITION
ROMANIAN GRAND PRIX - MAMAIA, CONSTANTA, august, 25 - august, 26



ROMANIA -- With a fleet of aircraft set to hit the skies over London this weekend at the Red Bull Air Race, another global air-sport has announced the first of its events for 2007. Aero GP, the only international air race series which features multiple aircraft racing simultaneously at close quarters, will launch the Constanta Challenge on the 25 – 26 August in Constanta, Romania. The event promises some of the most exciting aircraft racing anywhere in the world – while other international race series only allow one plane to fly at a time, Aero GP sees all competing craft in the air together.

The Constanta Challenge will be the third Aero GP event, following on from previous competitions in Slovenia in 2005 and the Grand Prix of Malta in 2006. Aero GP is unique in the world of motor sport with teams competing over three disciplines - the only air-racing series that features a combination of racing, air-to-air combat and target bombing. Points are awarded across the three disciplines, providing pilots with the ultimate test of flying ability.

Jeff Zaltman, Managing Director of Flying Aces Ltd, organisers of Aero GP, is delighted to be able to announce a new event for 2007:

Air racing is enjoying a renaissance at the moment and we believe Aero GP provides something that no other motor sport can. The Constanta Challenge will be the only international competition that sees multiple aircraft racing at the same time – it makes for breathtaking racing and fierce competition. We are looking forward to announcing a full race season for 2008 once the Constanta Challenge has been completed.”

The Aero GP Constanta Challenge takes place on 25th and 26th August in Constanta, Romania.

...
Speaking at a packed press conference in Constanta’s Black Sea resort of Mamaia, the Mayor expressed his excitement and the importance of the event that will take place on Sunday, 2 September. “The event is a great opportunity for Romania to present a good image to a worldwide audience which of course will be very good for tourism and the local economy. There is already great interest in the event and we are expecting over 100,000 spectators to come and see the race.

Joining Mayor Mazare on the top table and adding their full support was the President of Constanta County Council, Nicusor Constantinescu, Elena Frincu, Director of the Government Sport Agency of Constanta and Local Organiser, Ionut Barbu. “We are very happy that we succeed to bring Class 1 to Romania and Constanta, said Barbu. “There was big competition between Romania and many other countries for the event but it was our strategy and the special location we have in Mamai that convinced IOTA and the WPPA to give us the event.”

Romania offers a rich tapestry of tourist attractions and vacation experiences unique in Central-Eastern Europe: medieval towns in Transylvania, the world-famous Painted Monasteries in Bucovina, traditional villages in Maramures, the magnificent architecture of Bucharest, the romantic Danube Delta, fairy-tale castles, the Black Sea resorts, the majestic Carpathian Mountains, spas and much more.

Constanta: Boasting a beautiful location on the Black Sea and plentiful historic sights, Romania's second-largest city is a first-rate destination. An enjoyable stroll through Old Town takes you past not only the city's renowned Casino, but also the impressive mosque. Built in 1910, it features a tall minaret offering dramatic views over the city and the Black Sea. The mosque also houses Europe's largest carpet, a work of art that was handcrafted by a single person, a task that took 17 years to complete.


A truly international town, Constanta also is home to a Catholic church, the Orthodox Church of St. Paul and Peter, and a Greek Orthodox Church, where church services are conducted in Greek.
