The city of Constanta, the country's second largest by number of inhabitants, is not only a port and industrial centre but also a very old seaside resort, with a casino and a luxury hotel perched at the top of a promontory. The city has some Greek and Roman remains (according to mythology, this port is the one Jason and the Argonauts came to on their quest for the Golden Fleece), but Constanta also displays a very modern facet, through its large hotels and seafront buildings. As it is the landing point of summer charter flights, it becomes very lively. In the north of Constanta, the archaeological site of Histria is worth a visit. It is an ancient Greek trading post, the origins of which date back to the 7th century BC, and with well preserved remains.
