Neptun is a summer resort on the Romanian seacoast, on the Black Sea, 6 km north of Mangalia, part of a string of such resorts, Olimp, Jupiter, Cap Aurora, and Venus (between Olimp and Jupitor). Situated in a very beautiful landscape, boarded by Comorova forest to the West and Lake Neptun to the East, Neptun resort hasn't lost its charm and elegance. It is crossed by a main street, wide enough, from where secondary streets and shady alleys come off. The resort is abundant in well taken care greenery which “hide” hotels, villas and restaurants.
The beach of Neptun resorts is covered by thicker sand than that on the Northern part beaches of the seaside, and has a width which varies from 30 to 100 meters. The best known portion of the beach is caled La steaguri (To the flags). Between 1965 and 1967 there were built seven villas for the comunist dictator Nicolae Ceauşescu, his aides, and high communists dignitaries. After the fall of communism, there are housed the presidents of Romania, leading politicians and their relatives.
