Mamaia beach
Acording to legend, Mamaia resort gained its name from the desperate cries of a fair maiden, who, during the time Ottoman Empire, was kidnapped by a Turk and taken out to sea in a boat. As the wind howled, her frantic cries for her mother could be heard from miles around. Today, Mamaia is Romania's most popular resort with wide beaches, golden sand and a festival atmosphere.
