Constanţa is the oldest continuously inhabited port city in Romania, having served as a gateway from the Danube River to the Black Sea since its founding by the ancient Greeks. Located at the nexus of trade routes linking landlocked European countries to Central Asia and the Far East is the 1931 Maritime Station. With its clean, modernist design, it was built in part to receive passengers from the Orient Express and usher them onto the ferry to Constantinople, now Istanbul. Waving passengers off from the top of the station are two dolphins frolicking around a shield in the guise of a clock.
