The antique city of Histria or Istria was a Greek colony in today`s Constanta county. Histria Fortress is considered the oldest urban settlement from Romania. Specialists say it was founded around 630 b. Ch. The entire complex is a whole of layers that “talk” about various cultures that lived here.
The city of Histria had a continuous development of 1,300 years, from the Greek period to the Byzantin period. Today, tourists can visit the defensive wall with towers and bastions and ruins of some bazilicas, Roman thermae and a few settlements.
In 1982 was created The Histria Archaeologic Museum, which is subordinated to The Museum of National History and Archaeology from Constanta. The museum from Histria exhibits objects found across time by archaeologists in the site of Histria.
