Cerchezu is a commune in Constanţa County, Romania.

The commune includes two villages:

  • Cerchezu (historical name: Cerchezchioi, Turkish: Çerkezköy, German: Tscherkess) - named after the Circassian minority that settled the region
  • Căscioarele (historical name: Mamuşlia, Turkish: Mamuşlu, German: Mamuslia)
  • Măgura (historical name: Docuzaci, Turkish: Dokuzağaç )
  • Viroaga (historical name: Calfachioi, Turkish: Kalfaköy )

The territory of the commune also includes the former village of Căciulaţi (historical name: Cealmagea), nominally merged with Viroaga by the 1968 administrative reform.

Demographics

At the 2011 census, Cerchezu had 1,287 Romanians (99.84%), 2 others (0.16%). Before World War II the village had a small German minority.
