The history of Eforie Nord resort is linked to its neighbor, Eforie Sud resort, with which it forms an administrative unit.The cornerstone was laid in 1894, when the Eforia Spitalelor Civile Organization from Bucharest built a balneotherapeutic sanatorium. Five years later, next to the sanatorium, on the seashore, they built the first accommodation unit from the area, called Movila Hotel ( at present Parc Hotel, Eforie Sud), and on the shore of Lake Techirghiol they arranged the Movila Baths. Thus it was established the Movila-Techirghiol resort. Starting with 1920 there were built numerous villas, residences and holiday houses which belonged to the elites of that period. Across the time, the resort was also called Carmen Sylva and Vasile Roaita. The Eforie resort belonged to Techirghiol locality until 1933.
