On the southern Black Sea coast there is a big concentration of tourist resorts. The northern coast has a smaller concentration of resorts, which makes it the perfect place for a more peaceful isolated tourist experience. In between the two, you can find the biggest city on the coast – Constanta, and its additional resorts.
The main southern resorts include Vama Veche, Mangalia, Saturn, Jupiter, Neptun, Venus, 2 Mai, Costinesti and Aurora.
Mangalia has the biggest Stud Farm in South-Eastern Europe, with over 300 pure bred horses. This particular location was picked as it has the perfect geo-climaterical conditions for breeding Arabian horses. Mangalia Stud Farm covers 580 hectares, from which 400 hectares are cultivated with green crops for the horses. Horse races take place on Mangalia hippodrome from July until September. Horses are also used for tourist purposes.
The 2 Mai – Vama Veche natural marine reservation is a protected natural area that covers approximately 5,000 Hectars, and spreads over 7 km of the coastline. The reservation has the biggest most diverse concentration of fauna and flora marine habitats, which it’s meant to preserve. In other words, it presents the Black Sea coastline in its natural pure state, an unspoiled landscape which has been protected from human intervention.
