    A very interesting site to visit. I was impressed! Take the tour guide to learn as much as possible about 2700 years of history. Too bad that local authorities didn't see the potential of the site and...  more »

  • Ten years ago I visited Histria. The site was better managed, nu bushes between the ruins, more care for the museum. Today I can say that the road is bad, although Constanta is a wealthy county. The museum has a good colection of artefacts, but it isn't clean (dirty windows, maybe never washed, dirty exhibits from the lime witch falls from the sealing). The site isn't clean, many bushes and no care at all for the monuments, no signs, no explanations Ten years ago both columns in the picture were intact (one was missing the capitel) Today one is crumbbled in half, the other waits to fall with cracks in the upper part. Awfull managment, as for the entire county. Hope to publish the review, as the local authorities to read and change their policies. Lot of dust, spider webbs and indifference... Shame for the rich heritage!
  • The museum is a must see in case you are aware of human history
  • Not that tourist friendly. Bumpy road up to the site
  • A place full of history with great touristic potential, but with a low logistical and marketing development!
  • The site is interesting, is a shame that is not well organised in terms of historical reconstructions and explanations. Anyways for 10 Ron x person it's worth enough
