Venue : Hotel Malibu, Mamaia, Romania

Mamaia - the Resort:  Mamaia is the largest  Romanian resort on the Black Sea coast. It is located about 3 mi (5 km) north of Constanta City on a stretch of land a few miles long that separates Lake Siutghiol from the Black Sea. The climate is mild and the annual average temperature is about  F°51  (C°11). In July, the temperature raises to about F°73 (C°23) and in January to F°32  (C°0). The resort was officially opened in 1906. Currently, it can accommodate about 20 000 visitors in more than 64 hotels. 

     Mamaia has a 8 km long by about 100 m wide beach with most of the hotels located in close proximity or directly on the beach. The resort has tennis courts, mini golf, an outdoor theatre and hosts every year the Mamaia Music Festival.

     Lake Siutghiol is the perfect place for water sports or cruises to the nearby Ovidiu Island, the place where many believe the great Roman poet Publius Ovidius Naso was buried. Another great place to visit is The Vacation Village.  Here you can have fun in one of the rides,  can buy souvenirs or dine at one of the twenty or so restaurants with dishes specific to various country regions.

Constanta: Founded by Greek colonists from Miletos in the 6th century BC, Tomis was conquered by Romans in 71 BC and renamed Constantiana by Roman Emperor Constantine the Great in honor of his sister. The name was shortened to Constanta during the Ottoman era. During the 13th century, Italy, especially Genovese merchants, dominated the Black Sea and Constanta flourished, only to decline two centuries later under Turkish rule.
