2 Mai (Romanian pronunciation: [doj maj], "May 2") is a village in Limanu commune, Constanţa County, Romania, and a small resort on the shore of the Black Sea, between Mangalia and Vama Veche. It is located approximately 50 KM south of Constanta, 260 KM from Bucharest and about 100 KM North of Varna (Bulgaria).
The village was founded by Mihail Kogălniceanu in 1887 under the name Două Mai. Its first inhabitants were Russians from Bucharest, Iaşi and Galaţi. Later Lipovans from Tulcea County and Romanians from Argeş County settled here.
The village of 2 Mai has recently become known in Romania as a resort for middle-aged people and youngsters in search of a quiet place on the seaside. It also benefits from being close to Vama Veche, a very popular resort with the Romanian youngsters.
As a resort 2 Mai features hotels and hostels. Local villagers' houses or campsites can also provide accommodation. Beside several restaurants and bars there is also a popular nightclub.
