Royal Villa

Called the Royal Palace of Mamaia during the monarchy, the building was part of the property of Princess Elena, mother of King Mihai. There the young king spent part of his childhood summers.

The Royal Palace was designed by the Italian architect Mario Stoppa and built by Carlo Actis, under the direct direction of the architect Constantin D. Dobrescu.

Work on the grand summer residence began in 1923 and was completed three years later. The palace with an attic had a heating plant, a modern kitchen, a wardrobe, a laundry room, a buffet, and a small park was arranged in the yard, in the middle of which a fountain was built. Unfortunately, the queen did not spend a single day in the castle that stretched over an area of 1,200 square meters, Doina Păuleanu, the director of the Constanta Art Museum, tells us, because she discovered Balcicul, where she built another castle and where she used to to go every summer.

But the queen, Doina Păuleanu tells us, often came to the castle in Mamaia to watch its construction. He took advantage of the opportunity and galloped across the endless expanses of sand. "Very beautifully the queen described those wonderful moments spent in Mamaia, when the wind ruffled her clothes and caressed her hair. At the same time, we discover an almost deserted resort, with only a few villas and few people. After 1935, Mamaia began to develop", adds Doina Păuleanu.
