Romania: Romania Road Trip: Day 4

On our 4th day of the trip across Romania we decided to reach the Black Sea coast and the city Constanța, historically known as Tomis and the oldest continuously inhabited city in Romania. On our way there we crossed the Danube river, Europe's second-longest river, near the city Cernavodă, where the Romanians have their Cernavodă Nuclear Power Plant.
