Ports of Call
Constanta, Romania - It is the principal seaport of Romania. Chief exports of the city are oil and cereals; imports include coal and coke, machinery, and textiles. Industries in Constanta include fishing, shipbuilding, and the production of wine. The city has an archaeology museum, founded in 1879. In ancient times, the city was known as Tomi, and it was the town where the Roman poet Ovid spent his exile. In the 4th century AD it was rechristened Constantiana in honor of the sister of the Roman emperor Constantine the Great. Under Ottoman domination (1413-1878) the city was called Küstenja. The name was changed to Constanta in 1878, when Romania acquired the territory from Bulgaria.
Istanbul, Turkey - Istanbul, the only city in the world built on two continents, stands on the shores of the Istanbul Bogazi (Bosphorus) where the waters of the Black Sea mingle with those of the Sea of Marmara and the Golden Horn. Here on this splendid site Istanbul guards the precious relics of the three empires of which she has been capital; a unique link between East and West, past and present.
Nessebur, Bulgaria - From one of the oldest settlements in the Balkans, tour to the hinterlands to visit a typical Bulgarian village family. Enjoy a folklore show at famed Sunny Beach Resort.
Sinop, Turkey - is one of the finest harbors on the Black Sea coast, and has been a welcome haven for mariners for millennia. Diogenes was born here, and in legend met Alexander the Great here as well.
Varna, Bulgaria - Bulgaria's principal seaport, Varna is known as a shipbuilding and naval center. The town was founded in the 6th century B.C., and came under the authority of the Turks in 1391. It was the site of a major battle in 1444, when the Turks defeated the Hungarians and killed the King of Poland and Hungary, thereby retaining their control of the area. Varna was ceded to Bulgaria by the Treaty of Berlin in 1878. Today it is a major resort and cultural center, with international, cultural and sporting events.
