  The Romanian coast offers in summer fantastic bathing possibilities. The sun rises in the morning out of the sea and the beach disappears very slowly under water, so that one can walk through the sea quite a distance or swim at low depth. Moreover, there are no dangerous fish. In addition, the Black Sea does not have any high tide, as it is nearly an inland sea. Vacations at the seaside include Constanta as well, the biggest port in the region. The Greeks in Millet have erected several colonies at the Black Sea, of which Histria is the best conserved. Ovid was himself banished to Tomis, today's Constanta. Greeks and Romans, Byzantium and the Turkish Empire, all have left traces behind. Dionysus is incidentally from this region; to celebrate him, nice wine evenings are organized on the coast.
