The Casino - built in 1909 was inaugurated in August 1910; the designs were made by the French architect Daniel Renard (first design was made in 1903; in 1905, the architect Petre Antonescu made the second design - but the first one was chosen). The building has been the most representative in town for decades, a real symbol for Constanta; it was also the only representative of "art nouveau" style in Romania. On the top of the building, the decorations consists of old ships representations (ram heads and alga garlands); inside there are staircases and imposing banisters, covered columns and marble girdles on the walls. In 1985-1987 the building was restored, the furniture was entirely changed.
