  What was the building that we can see near the waterslide?

  I've explored it but I still have no clue what was it's purpose. The walls that are standing have no windows just a decorative pattern that you can see in the photo, there is no sign of a roof ever beeing over the whole structure and the floor wich seems to never been more than ground has been invaded by trees and different plants thriving on the mini swamp a drain has created (you can see the small pipe size drain under the concrete lid in the right of the photo near one of the walls). There are two power line units inside the walls coming from under the ground and though the walls (one on the wall further away and one on the one close to the waterslide) and that's about it: no other way of finding out what was this building's purpose, sorry.

  The 'building' is actually a concrete fence for something called a 'passive solar heat generation device', basicly lots of steel frame boxes angled at 45 degrees and facing south (would be away from the camera in the picture). These boxes had black painted brass pipes in them, standing on an aluminium bottom (think of them as being matchboxes with the top removed, bottom being a mirror and the matches being pipes). This device would heat sea water and circulate it through the slide using very little energy (just the pumps - hence the term pasive in its name). The small concrete hut in the right bottom corner of the fence used to be the pump station. If you're wondering what happened to all the stuff, well let's just say brass and aluminum are worth about 10 times what steel is on the scrap metal market.

  I live in Bucharest, but come to Constanta quite often. I'm just glad to lend a helping hand.
