Danube – Black Sea Channel
Cutting Dobrudgea region from West to East, this is the most impressive construction ever made in Romania and the 3rd navigable channel in the world after Suez (184 km) and Panama (81 km). The main route, Cernavoda – Poarta Alba – Agigea, built between ’76-’84, has 64 km. The northern branch, Poarta Alba – Midia Navodari, built between ’82-’87, has only 31 km.
The idea arose in 1800 when the Otoman Empire (owner of Dobrudgea) wished a faster water access and avoid the menace of Russian Empire (that had taken control of Danube Delta). So it ordered a railway to the British.
After Dobrudgea’s returning to the mother-land, this plan of shortcut became a dream of King Charles I, foiled by the Two World Wars. When communists came, following Stalin’s advice-order, they sent the Resistance members to forced labor at what will have to be later, the Danube-Black Sea Channel.
Feel the breeze…
The first stop is at an archaeological museum to see an ancient mosaic.
Studs farm and horseback riding
Horseback riding is just one of Wallachia’s outdoor pursuits. Riding on the beach or following forestry roads reward you with an exhilarating sense of freedom, not to mention the spectacular scenery you can admire. Get on the horse and enjoy the views ! But not before finding out everything about this Arabian blood stud farm. In the evening a romantic fish and sea fruits dinner on the lake shore is scheduled.
Evanghelia shipwreck was built on the same shipbuilding yard as Titanic. It belonged to Onasis, who agreed with the ship-owner to beach it 1968 in order to cash the insurance money. True or not for sure you’ll treasure your photo taken with it in the background.
The afternoon is reserved for another private experience. This will unveil you on high either the monument of Adamclisi and ruins of the ancient Greek city of Histria, or the sinuous line of Romanian coast. End the day visiting a 2000 year old vineyard and its wine museum. The premium wines tasted here can be yours for only half of the price these are sold in high class restaurants.
