12-Star City

12-Star City Medgidia

Situated in the central area of Dobrogea Highland, in the county of Constanta, at a more or less equal distance between the Danube and the Black Sea, the city of Medgidia is fascinating not only because of its cultural diversity, but also on account of its historical background. It is known first on account of the canal which connects the Danube to the Black Sea. The Canal was built in the former valley of Carasu and inaugurated in 1984. As a result of the rich industrial and agricultural network consolidated in the past, Medgidia is situated in an area of tremendous historic resonance, a fact which has been confirmed by its numerous relics.

12-Star City Mioveni

Mioveni is a modern, well-organised and prosperous town located in Arges County, Romania. An ancient monastery dated from 1573 in a green forested area and a new modern cathedral located in the middle of the urban area of the town are its main symbols. Local authorities have a clear vision on a common Europe, on democracy and individual liberty.   For this reason, and as recognition for its intense activity for promoting European values, our city obtained the European Diploma in 2012 and the Flag of Honour in 2013.
