Today Constanta is the most important port on the Black Sea, industrial city, cultural and academic center, museum of priceless vestiges, seaside "capital" and valuable tourist center.

Constanta City

TOMIS (historical name), is the oldest extant city in Romania, founded around 600 BC.
Tomis (also called Tomi) was a Greek colony in the province of Scythia Minor on the Black Sea shore, founded around 600 BC for commercial exchanges with the local Getic populations. The name may likely be derived from Greek "Tomi" meaning cutpiece, section.

The city is located in the Dobruja region of Romania, on the Black Sea coast. It is the capital of Constanta County and the largest city in the region. The city of Constanta is one of the most important in Romania, one of four roughly equal-size cities which rank after Bucharest.
The Constanta metropolitan area, founded in 2007, comprises 14 localities located at a maximum distance of 30 km (19 mi) from the city, and, with 446,600 (in 2011) inhabitants, it is the second largest metropolitan area in Romania.

The Port of Constanta has an area of 39.26 km (15.16 sq mi) and a length of about 30 km (19 mi). It is the largest port on the Black Sea, and one of the largest ports (the fourth) in Europe.

Constanta County

Constanta (Romanian pronunciation: [kon'stantsa]) is the name of a county (judet) in the Dobruja region of Romania.
Its capital city is also named Constanta. In 2011, it had a population of 630,700.
The degree of urbanization is much higher (about 75%) than the Romanian average.
The majority of the population are Romanians. There are important communities of Turks and Tatars, remnants of the time of Ottoman rule. Currently the region is the centre of the Muslim minority in Romania. A great number of Aromanians have migrated to Dobruja in the last century, and they consider themselves a cultural minority rather than an ethnic minority. There are also Romas.
The county is famous for its agriculture (cereals being the most important products) and its wines, those from the Murfatlar region especially.
At Cernavoda there is a nuclear power plant with two reactors (Canadian type).
