About Galati

Galati is a historical city, kept alive by the many historical attractions found within its area, such as Precista Church, which is a valuable Roman, medieval architectural monument, Alexandru Ioan Cuza Memorial House, or the numerous statues dedicated to great men, significant to the national history or culture, such as Mihai Eminescu, who has a statue risen in its name, in Central Park, dating since 1911.

Other points of touristical importance in Galati's area include the Zoo, which is situated in Garboavele Forest, about 17 km north west of the city, the Palace of Navigation, which today is the Fluvial Station, an elegant and functional construction, dating since 1912, St. Nicholas Orthodox Cathedral, a magnificent example of neo-Byzantine architecture, with Moldavian influences, or the Natural Sciences Museum Complex, dating since 1990, which lies on an 18h surface, on Danube's left shore, where anyone interested in nature can find out more of its secrets.

The History Museum, inaugurated in 1939 is also of interest, featuring a vast collection that reveals the history of the Romanian nation, and of Galati City. The museum's collection includes items from the Paleolithic, Neolithic, as well as from the Bronze and Iron eras, including items belonging to the Greek, Roman and medieval cultures.

Art lovers would, perhaps, want to visit the Vizual Art Museum, which is a popular Galati attraction, as well. It is the first contemporary art museum in Romania and was especially conceived to present the newest art trends from the XX century. The Romanian creations between 1967 and 2000 make most of the museum's patrimony and permanent collection. Among the most significant names in the museum we find Horia Bernea, Ion Gheorghiu, Marin Gherasim, Ion Pacea, Ion Salisteanu, and George Apostu, among others.

With so many attractions to offer, Galati is always a delight for visitors!
