About Braila

The town and its surrounding area were controled by Ottoman Turks from 1538-1540 until 1829. Since then, the city was attacked, plundered, and set on fire, and experienced a period of economic decline, after the 1989 Revolution. However, it managed to pull through, today being an important touristic and balneotherapeutic center, offering its visitors many picturesque sights, and many recreational opportunities, the city boasting breathtaking natural surroundings and a gorgeous Danubian landscape.

Besides the natural attractions, Braila also offers a wide range of cultural attractions for visitors of all ages and tastes, among which there is the Independence Square, which represents the new center of the city, where we find other attractions, such as Ecaterina Teodoroiu statue, Alexandru Ioan Cuza bust, the monument of the 1989 Revolution, or the Agriculture Palace.
