Techirghiol

(4/5 based on a few reviews for 1 attraction)
Techirghiol is a town in Constanţa County, Romania.EtymologyThe name is derived from the Turkish Tekirgöl which means "the lake of Tekir". According to a legend, a blind and crippled old man named Tekir and his old donkey reached the shore of the lake by mistake. Trying to pull his stubborn animal out of the mud, Tekir was miraculously healed so he could see and walk normally again. Since then the lake has become famous for its healing properties. Tekir and his donkey are featured in a statue located in the center of the town.The name also means (in Turkish) "Striped Lake" (tekir - striped, and göl - lake). This is because of the salinity of the lake; when the wind blows, white salt stripes appear on the surface of the lake.LocationTown is in the south east extremity of Romania, situated on the north west shore of Lake Techirghiol, elevation 15–20 m, 18 km south of the municipality of Constanța and very close to the Black Sea .In Techirghiol the winters are mild and the summers are warm, dominant being the clear skies .HistoryTechirghiol was first marked on the country's map in 1893 but developed steadily after 1912, establishing itself as a spa town.
