The proposed venue of the 5th MMHN Conference is the Faculty of History and Political Sciences of ‘Ovidius’ University, in its new campus in Constanţa.
‘Ovidius’ is the largest state university in south-eastern Romania, with a total of about 15,000 students, including 1,000 international students. The university is organized in sixteen faculties that cover the entire spectrum of academic disciplines, from the humanities and social sciences, to medicine and the hard sciences.
The Faculty of History and Political Sciences coordinated three BA programs (History, Political Science, International Relations and European Studies), two MA programs and a doctoral school in History.
Accommodation and meals
A fashionable destination for sea lovers during the summer season, Constanța has a large number of affordable hotels in the city itself and in its neighboring resort of Mamaia.
The organizers will recommend in due time a list of hotels in the vicinity of the conference venue.
Travelling to Constanţa
Constanţa is served by the Mihail Kogălniceanu International Airport (about 20 km north-west), but the city is well connected to the main Romanian air hub in the city of Bucharest Otopeni (about 200 km west), easily reachable from all over Europe.
There are shuttle buses going every about two hours from the airport to Constanţa and plenty of coaches leaving Bucharest every hour throughout the day. Also there are five daily trains leaving from the main railway station in Bucharest. The trip takes about 2–3 hours and the price is about €15 for a single trip.
The conference fee (75 Euros) will cover the cost of conference materials for participants, coffee breaks, welcome and farewell receptions. Accepted participants will be informed about payment options.
Attractions and social program
Constanţa is now an important cultural and economic center, worth exploring for its rich archaeological treasures and the atmosphere of the old town center. Its historical monuments, ancient ruins, grand Casino, museums and shops, and proximity to beach resorts make it the focal point of Black Sea coast tourism. Regional attractions include traditional villages, vineyards, ancient monuments and the Danube Delta, one of the best preserved deltas in the world.
