Mamaia is a summer resort on the western shore of the Black Sea. It is located in the northern city of Constanta, Romania. Mamaia is not an independent town but a district of Constanta with very few permanent residents (under 50), being mostly during the summer. Construction of residential complexes, which now is set on Lake Siutghiol is likely to change this state of affairs. 

Mamaia is 8 km (5 miles) in length and only 300 m (328 yards) in width, being a strip of land between the Black Sea and Lake Siutghiol.The very long beach with a width up to 250 m is covered with fine sand. There are may shops, restaurants, terraces, clubs and discos. 


The first constructions in the current location of Mamaia were built in 1906 and consisted of wooden cabins gathered in two pavilions, that ended with an arbour and a bridge that goes to the the sea.The inauguration took place on August 22, 1906.The constructions were designed by the landscape architect E. Recont, after the harbour's extension to the already existing beaches in Constanta and the moving of  the "sea baths" in a different location, wich is currently Mamaia. To facilitate access for tourists in Mamaia (or what is now the Casino area in Mamaia), between Constanta and the resort,a railway line is beeing mounted on the route on which Mamaia Blvd is set on today . These constructions were the center for tourist activities until their disappearance caused by a fire in 1920. Immediately after World War I the resort is planned and it's development beggins, with the construction of the royal family's summer residence  wich is now Castel Club. The casino was built in 1925 and in 1934 the first hotel wich was actually a villa . The first real hotel, was Rex (1936) and  only in 1957 Bucharest (currently Yaki) appears which today represents one of the best hotels in Mamaia.During the communist era,a series of constructions were build without an urbanization plan, so that the highstream of tourists attracted by the fine sand could be supported. The resort's development happened in two stages: between 1959 - 1965 the south side was developed , beginning with hotel Park and the northern part that was built mostly during the Ceausescu period, between 1982-1985.

Constanta is the oldest city in Romania. The first documentary attestation dates from 657 BC when the current  peninsula ( to the right of the Casino) formed a Greek colony called Tomis. The settlement was conquered by the Romans in 71 BC and renamed Constantiana after the sister of the emperor Constantine the Great . During the thirteenth century the great sea (as the the Black Sea was called  then) was dominated by Italian merchants from Genoa who helped develop the city. After that, Contanta  declined under the Ottoman rule and became a simple village inhabited by Greek fishers and tartar horse and sheep breeders.The settlement become a city after the construction of the Cernavoda-Constanta railway and port in 1865, for export of Romanian grains. After the Russian -Turkish War (1877-1878), when Dobrogea became part of the Kingdom of Romania, Constanta, the main port of the state increased continuously, holding that role till today.
