Medgidia happens to be a place in Romania. Specifically speaking it is actually a city in south-eastern Romania. If you want to visit here, you will have to take a precaution because there are travel restrictions because of the coronavirus pandemic, that has enveloped the planet of earth.

There are a lot of things that you can do in this place. Let me tell you something about Medgidia. It is not our convention in London, New York, Dubai, Los Angeles. It is not like the city. It is very different. It is a city that is small and quiet. But, you can have a good and quiet time in the city.

There are quite a few things that you can do.

You can visit the Art Museum “Lucian Grigorescu” because it is spectacular. It was opened in the year 1964 with a lot of exhibitions of the Romanian contemporary paintings. This place has sculptures, paintings, graphics and more. They have placed a lot of permanent exhibits as well. The exhibitions take in a modern and a classic effect. They have a lot of contemporary art classics as well. The museum has done a great job at displaying a large collection of ceramic artworks. In the year 1991, the museum was actually named after the person Lucian Grigorescu, who was a native of the town and he was also deemed the most Latin among all of the Romanian painters. The city honours the painter every single year on 1 February, which is also the anniversary of his birthday.

You can also visit Saint Peter and Paul Orthodox church. The church was built in Roman – Greek style. It was also raised with the contributions of Christians from the local town.

You can also visit the Serbian heroes’ monument. In the year 1926, Medgidia commemorated the heroism of the very first Siberia division which also fought in Dobruja at the same time as World War I. It was a part of the Rumanian theatre, and by inaugurating a monument, in the group’s honour, a lot of people were happy. The completed memorial features an iconic white marble pyramid, and it was also the perfect setting of a ceremony which was held with the participation of both the Romanian and the Yugoslavian and officials. It is also quite interesting to note that wreaths were laid at the base of the monument by all of the members of the Romanian and the Serbian royal families.

Project to improve the situation of the Roma in Medgidia

Roma

PROGRAM: PHARE 2006 ACCELERATION national strategies for Roma
COMPONENT: GRANT MANAGEMENT SCHEME FOR COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT
AREA: VOCATIONAL TRAINING AND INCOME GENERATING ACTIVITIES

1. Professional training, recognition of acquired skills through training and support for Roma income generating activities

General description of the project

The project aimed at improving the quality of life of members of the Roma community in Medgidia, Constanta County, in order to include social members of the target community by resolving the situation of professional qualification. This project is part of a Roma social integration program in Medgidia.

Within the project, the emphasis was on the professional training of the Roma, in construction trades and other trades useful to the Roma community. The registration of Roma people in this project was made following a selection made by the representatives of the Medgidia City Hall and the partner involved in the project, the “Dobrogea” Association – League of Deportees from the Second World War.

The present project aimed at qualifying a number of 45 Roma people in the trades sought on the labor market. The qualification courses, as well as the solutions for hiring Roma people for their employment in income-generating activities, were the subject of this project. Thus, it was aimed that Roma people, qualified in these trades to actively participate in the implementation of two other projects included in the program, namely the construction of 10 social housing for members of the Roma community and their infrastructure (arrangement of access roads, extension of network water supply and sewerage network) in an area inhabited by Roma.

The following equipment was purchased within the project:
– Modular metal scaffolding and specific equipment for exterior thermal insulation of buildings;
– 4 sewing machines that will be distributed to the people who attended tailoring courses;
– A container module with the destination of hairdresser, properly arranged and equipped.

The expected results following the implementation of the project are:

45 professionally trained persons, fit for employment, as follows:

1. 10 masons;
2. 10 painters;
3. 10 carpenters (with skills and PVC and aluminum carpentry workers);
4. 8 cleaning agents (women – 5 with washing skills and 3 with ironing skills)
5. 3 seamstresses;
6. 4 barber shops.

– 8 jobs for qualified craftsmen in the field of constructions who will benefit from the modular metal scaffolding and the specific equipment for the external thermal insulation of the buildings;

How the project improved the situation of the target groups:

This project aims to contribute to raising the standard of living and social integration of members of the Roma community in Medgidia, who were at risk of social exclusion.

Thus, the estimated effects of the project will be manifested by:
1. Decreasing the resistance to change of the target group, integration in the social system, in lucrative groups, as a result of the skills obtained from training.
2. Increasing the living standard of the members of the Roma community. Given that Roma families in general are numerous, ensuring a secure income obtained by at least one family member will have beneficial effects on the whole family, which will allow the creation of decent living conditions.
3. The prospects of a secure income as well as the awareness of the advantages offered by the training will have as an effect the improvement of the educational life. Thus, the Roma in the community will respond much better to the educational programs promoted by the authorities.
4. Access to the services of the public health system of Roma families whose members are engaged in productive activities
5. Decreased antisocial phenomena among the Roma population, as a result of increased training and employment opportunities in income-generating productive activities.
6. Increasing trust in local public institutions and the partner NGO, the “Dobrogea” Association – League of Deportees from the Second World War.
7. The creation of nuclei within the Roma community which, through good practice, will be examples for the other members of the community.
8. At individual level, the participants will acquire and practice new communication skills and knowledge that will contribute decisively to the increase of the efficiency of their work and of the work formations of which they are part but also an extra chance of socio-professional reintegration.

It has an area of 90.17 km² which can also be considered as 34.81 mi.². It has a population of 39,780 hours of the year 2011. This was nine years ago I am sure the population has actually increased quite a bit since then. Its time zone is EET/EEST. The vehicle registration for this place is CT. Archaeological findings actually show that Dobruja was actually inhabited since the neolithic period. Starting with 46 BC, the region was actually administrated by the Roman Empire. A castrum was actually built in the Carasu Valley, and it became the cradle of the settlement. In the year 1417, the Turks actually invaded Dobruja, and from the 15th century, the region actually started to be colonised by a Muslim population. The settlement which was also named Karasu was also mentioned on the map in 1497. After the Russo Turkish war of 1877 to 1878, Northern Dobruja then became a part of Romania as it is today.

Medgidia is actually located between the Danube and the Black Sea, which is actually 39 km away from Constanta. If we look at the general aspect of the relief, it is actually that of a low plateau with a limestone structure which is covered with a lot of thick deposits of loess. The natural resources of the area are consistent with limestone deposits. The limestone structure of the earth actually permits a very natural filtering of the groundwater.

romania

If we are talking about the climate, it is actually temperate continental, with very short and cold winters, and scorching summers. If you are a person who loves to eat, I feel that this would be a great place to visit to get some quiet time. It is not a metropolitan so that you can have your own space and time.

If we are looking at the local administration, it became a municipality in the year 1997. The infrastructure of the town is always in continuous development, and it also offers the inhabitants four high schools, eight primary schools, four cultural centres and 12 nurseries. If we look at it as a whole, it is actually a smaller place. It has two shows and cinema halls, three clubs and only five libraries. It has a stadium that can seat 30,000 people. It also has a sports hall and a beautiful swimming pool. They have a hospital that can accommodate 500 people.

The above was a brief summation of some general information about Medgidia. Visit as per your convenience.

Property In Medgidia

Property

Property rates in places like Medgidia Will actually not be as expensive when compared to property rates in London, Dubai, Los Angeles and more. These places are actually metropolitan city’s which are also the hubs of the world. But, places like Medgidia can and will offer you much cheaper property rates. Buying a property and moving in can be tedious. If you are considering buying a property in Medgidia, you have come to the right place. I will be listing out some pros and cons in this list. It would be best if you considered all of the phases. You should also consider if you want to move into a “ready to move in” home.

You should also look at the immediate occupancy rules and regulations. If you are looking for homes that are ready to move in, you should know that there are some preferred properties for people who are looking to make a good investment.

You should know that there are two sides to every coin and buying a property in Medgidia may not be the right decision for you if you are someone who likes to live in metropolitan city’s, because Medgidia is not a metropolitan city at all. It is a quiet city. You should know all the pros and cons before you go ahead and put in your hard-earned money. It would help if you avoided all kinds of unforeseen challenges. Here are some points that will help you make the right decision.

Buy A Property

You should visit the house and see it. You should be absolutely sure that the house is satisfactory to you. You should also know that what you see is what you get. One of the most amazing benefits of moving into a ready to move in house is that you get the property exactly how you see it. All the fixtures are all put in. You will also see a lot of improvements which have to be made within the property. This is also something that will offer you a lot of opportunities.

See this investment as a lifetime opportunity. You may be investing $1 million now, but, you may get back much more in return, when you sell it. You should also know that there are so many tax benefits on behalf of the buyer. House buyers can avail service tax benefits because, ready to move in houses are always accompanied with little to almost no service tax charges.

 

investment

One of the biggest cons that I have to talk about is inflated costs. Another concert I would like to list out is that Medgidia while being a very beautiful place, is very quiet and not much happens here. Are you sure you want to buy your dream house here?
