  Port Map

Constanta is a Romanian port city located on Black Sea's western coast. Port of Constanța is located approx 330 km (206 mi) from the Bosphorus Strait (Turkey) and approx 160 km (100 mi) from Sulina (through which Danube flows into Black Sea).

The port (locaode ROCND) covers around 40 km2 (15 mi2) of which the land portion is 13 km2 (5 mi2) and the water zone is 26 km2 (10 mi2). The port is well sheltered by 2 breakwaters (northwards and southwards). Constanta is Black Sea's largest port, and Europe's 18th largest.

The favourable geographical position and the importance of the Port of Constanța is emphasized by the connection with two Pan-European transport corridors: Corridor VII – Danube (inland waterway) and Corridor IV (railway). The two satellite ports, Midia and Mangalia, located not far from Constanța Port, are part of the Romanian maritime port system under the coordination of the Maritime Ports Administration SA.

Sights of interest include the Archaeological Museum and the Treasury with a gigantic 3rd century Roman Mosaic. Tourists can also walk along Black Sea waterfront promenade from Edwardian casino to Genoese Lighthouse. Due to the proximity of sea, the littoral's lakes are endowed with therapeutic minerals. The Lake Tekirghiol's mud baths are particularly renowned.

Just like the rest of Romania, little is known about Constanta from the departure of Romans until late Middle Ages (14th-15th centuries) when it became an important port for Genoese traders. Long-lasting prosperity didn't arrive until late-19th-20th centuries. From Constanta it is possible to explore Danube Delta and Histria - an Ancient Greek city colony (polis) considered the oldest urban settlement on Romanian territory (dating back from 630 BC).

In 2019, the cruise port handled 21 ship calls (mainly riverboats) and ~3000 passengers. Among the visiting ships was the ocean liner Amera (fromerly MS Prinsendam). The 39050-ton vessel (now owned by Phoenix-Reisen) docked on October 29 bringing a total of 754 passengers (max capacity 835) plus 459 crew. Next table shows the ship's 16-day Mediterranean and Black Sea itinerary as call ports and port times (arrival/departure)
