2289 ROMANIA (Constanţa) - Saturn
Saturn is not only a Roman agricultural deity and the sixth planet from the Sun, but also one of the six summer resorts located in area Comorova, on the Romanian coast of the Black Sea, at 43 km from Constanţa. Completed in 1972, the resort has two major beaches: Adras beach, located in the northern part of the resort, closer to Venus, and Diana beach in the south, located near the town of Mangalia, laced by numerous gulfs artificially created.
Saturn was built along the beach, so hotels in the area are open directly onto the sand of the seashore. The climate in the area of Comorova is warmer compared to other seaside resorts such as Mamaia, Eforie or Costineşti, because the Comorova resorts are located in the southernmost area, but also because of the reduce of Comorova forest which cooled the area. In winter, aside from several guards and maintenance staff, the resort is deserted.
About the stamp
The stamp is part of the third set of a very extensive series, entitled Romanian Pottery, about which I wrote here.
