Ovidius University of Constanta

Ovidius University of Constanta can be defined by its location on the shores of the Black Sea, in the largest city of Dobruja and South-Eastern Romania.

The Dobruja region, delimited by the Danube and the Black Sea, represents a bridge between East and West and its religious and ethnic diversity singles it out as a veritable cultural mosaic. Dobruja can in fact be considered the eastern gateway of the European Union. Dobruja is also unique due to the Black Sea coast and the Danube Delta, the second largest and best-preserved European delta, a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1991. The tourist resorts on the Black Sea coast are a favorite summer destination for both Romanian and foreign tourists.

Constanta developed on the foundations of an ancient metropolis that began its history over 2500 years ago. Founded by Greek settlers from Miletus in the 6th century BC, Tomis was conquered by the Romans in 71 BC and renamed Constantiana by the Roman emperor Constantine the Great, in honor of his sister. During the Ottoman rule the name was changed to Kustendje, but after the War of Independence (1877-1878), which resulted in the withdrawal of the Turks, the city regained it solder name. Constanta flourished under the influence of Genoese merchants, then stagnated two centuries later under the Turkish domination.

Constanța is the largest city in South-Eastern Romania and is located in a booming economic area. From a cultural point of view, the city offers various possibilities for leisure, including visiting the Museums of Art, Folk Art, History and Archeology or the Museum of Natural Sciences. Also, theaters, cinemas, gyms, and malls offer many options for those looking for various ways to spend their free time.

Constanța is a city for young people, where fun has a special place. Located on the Black Sea coast, our city is a major tourist attraction, a favorite summer vacation destination of hundreds of thousands of tourists and a vibrant university city.  The beaches in the city and in the resort of Mamaia are famous for the quality of the sea water, sand, and the dynamic and varied ways of spending time in the summer days. In addition, they provide the ideal setting for an effervescent nightlife – the terraces, clubs, live shows, and famous festivals that take place annually here make Constanța an irresistible choice for the young generation.
