1. Constanța Casino
The Constanța Casino is a defunct casino, located in Constanța, Romania. It has been designated by the Romanian Ministry of Culture and National Patrimony as a historic monument. The casino is on the Constanța seafront along the Black Sea in the historic Peninsulă District of the city. Three different buildings were built in the district to hold a casino, with the first structure being erected of wood in 1880. Considered a symbol of the city of Constanța, the current structure was built in Art Nouveau style, designed and built according to the plans of Daniel Renard and inaugurated in August 1910. The current Casino was used for gambling operations for 38 years, with interruption due to the two world wars: attacked and bombed by Bulgarian and German troops in World War I, ravaged in World War II and, at one point, acted as a makeshift wartime hospital. In 1948 it was transformed into a community centre and in 1960 it was handed to the National Office of Tourism which transformed into a restaurant. The last major repairs took place in 1986–1988, and the building was abandoned until 2019 and currently it's under renovation again.
