View of the Histria Fortress near Ana Hotels Europa

Built in the 7th century B.C. by the Greek merchants of Milet, Histria is the oldest city in Romania that still shows traces of a flourishing civilization.

First discovered in 1914 by Vasile Pârvan, the renowned Romanian historian, the ancient city of Histria was one of the most important commercial cities located West of the Black Sea. Built by Greek settlers and later conquered by the Romans, the fortress was included in the Dacian state led by Burebista which, following a new Roman influence, began to decline due to foreign invasions.
