Romania – Following last month’s announcement that Constanta Casino can be restored and refurbished, planning and works are now underway.
The famous casino, once dubbed ‘Romania’s Monte Carlo’ is located in Constanta, Romania and has been an iconic landmark of Romania’s coastline for more than 100 years.
However, the building was abandoned almost 2 decades ago amid safety concerns.
Since abandonment, 4 separate restoration proposals were rejected, but an appeal withdrawal and mayoral announcement brought the news that the venue is to be fully restored with completion pencilled for the middle of the year 2022.
Some years ago, Constanta Casino was an upper-class entertainment establishment for wealthy elite socialites with more than fifteen card game tables and two billiard tables.
The casino played host to annual parties for upper-class locals and tourists who flocked to the high class Romanian casino in droves. People from all over the world would visit Constanta Casino and gamble very large sums of money in what is described as the card game tournaments of today.
Refurbishment and restoration of the casino will also include Romania’s Black Sea coast promenade with an investment in the region of 12 million Euro.
