Title: Consiliul Judetean Braila

Braila County
  • at a glance

  • " Braila, city and county, represent a space of
    vivacity and energy in the countrys life.
  •  Only the bravest and the meekest Romanians could
    resist there, under the Turks.
  • After the liberation, the only people who ran
    there were the ones able to be the founders and
    the defenders of the new order of life.   Thus, a
    Braila race was born. This race keeps on
    existing, no matter how long the families would
    interfere with the immigrants. Both in culture
    and politics, this race presents its qualities
    that the country, apathetic, needs more than
    ever. The youth has a duty to carry out here,
    that cannot be confused with the others one

Situated on the left bank of the Danube river,
with a venerable age of 638 years, Braila has
always represented the place where water and land
join in harmoniously and the sun pours its
richness of light and warmth. The geographical
position is very generous both for the county and
for the municipality, Braila being situated in
the south-eastern part of the country, between
the coordinates of 44 44' and 45 30' north
latitude and 27 04' and 28 10' east longitude,
on a surface of 4.766km2. In the Plain, Braila
County occupies, in the north, a part of the
Meadow of the Lower Siret , close to which the
Baraganului Plain spreads, in the west, small
parts of Salcioara Plain and Buzaului Plain, and
in the east the Big Island of Braila. It can be
said that the county is surrounded by the waters
of some important rivers such as Siret, Buzau,
together with the old river of the Danube that,
splitting into two branches, make the Big Island
of Braila.
  • There are 44 administrative-territorial units in
    Braila County, among which Braila municipality, 3
    towns (Faurei, Ianca, Insuratei) with 11
    localities and 40 communes 131 villages.
  • The population of the county, on the 18th of
    March 2002, was of 373.174 inhabitants, from
    which more than 66 were in the urban area (239.
    108 inhabitants).
  • The administrative seat is Braila municipality,
    the last port on the Danube it is situated 200
    km north-east of Bucharest. Braila is located on
    46o 16 17 north latitude and 27o 58 33 east

It is interesting to mention that Braila, due to
its position and history, has always had a
cosmopolite character, of cultural and ethnic
mosaic, given by the presence of numerous
ethnical communities on this land. Former
Turkish raya for a period of more than three
centuries, being in the way of the Russian,
Austrian, Turkish, Romanian wars, Braila was
destroyed and reborn out from its own ash many
The real flourishing of the town took place after
the Adrianopolis Treaty in 1829, when Braila
rejoined the mother country. During the second
half of the 19th century and the first decades of
the 20th century, Braila made remarkable
progress, first of all economically. The
cohabitation of Romanians, Greeks, Bulgarians,
Russians, Armenians and Jews offered a
picturesque note to this important port of the
Danube, as a space of genuine European
The Free Zone statute obtained in 1836
created good conditions for a very intensive
transit trade, a great amount of Romanian and
foreign goods being brought in Brailas
ware-houses, both for import and export. Due to
its favorable position , Braila was last
important seaport on the Danube where maritime
ships could come. The city knew its golden period
between 1836 and 1894, when it became a turn
table in the international trade changes on the
Lower Danube. History, as well as the commercial
benefits, turned the city into a place where many
nationalities met and lived together. A large
number of Romanian and foreign merchants,
English, French, Greek, Italians, Jews, Lippovans
came to Braila, finding here the people and the
space that helped them to keep their own
religions and traditions.
At Braila some premieres were recorded, such
as one of the first Romanian cities that used
public lighting, reinforced concrete was used for
the first time for building wharves and piers,
the first electric plant was built only thirteen
years after Edisons invention, Braila was the
first Romanian city to have electric trams. All
these place Braila in the vanguard of the cities
of the time.
From old times, Brailas inhabitants have always
had agriculture, breeding and fishing on the
western bank of the Danube as main activities. A
sailing ship. the symbol of Braila city , was
also the symbol of the trade, the main activity
of the inhabitants of this area. In 1836, Braila
was declared porto-franco. Here were opened the
first Chamber of Commercial Arbitration (1836),
the Exchange of Goods and Cereals (1882), the
Commercial Court and the Commercial Bank. Due to
its economical boom, Braila became one of the
most important commercial centres of Romania. The
intensive trade and the industrial development
during the 18th century and the beginning of the
19th century marked Brailas history. In 1911,
year of maximum commercial activity, Brailas
trade represented 22 of the Romanian trade and
20 of import This development meant steam mills,
pasta factory, shipyard (1864), beer factory
(1872) and docks (1883). The first foreign
investment in Braila was done in 1924 the
Franco-Romanian Company. Between 1941-1944,
during the World War l, both the import and the
export in Braila decreased, after the 12th
General Congress of the Romanian Cities Union
from 1937, when it was reached the apogee.
Brailas history will dramatically change between
the two moments the 23rd of August 1944 the
22nd of December 1989.
Braila is not a museum city, but its visitors
can feel its magic, legends and history that are
present everywhere. After 2000, the results of a
too ambitious, unrightfully and disproportioned
industrial development appeared. Many of the most
important industrial units closed their doors
partially or even totally. This fact led to the
depreciation of the living level and the citys
development, more than in the rest of the
country. If the accent in the economical life
had been put on the port for centuries, during
the next period, after the Liberation, when the
communist regime was installed, this accent was
put on the industry a strong one that will
become established through the machines and
equipments construction, ship building, chemical
industry, ready-made clothes, food industry etc.
Braila trade marks, as Promex, Braiconf have
become well-known in the country and abroad,
making the county to be placed on the 9th
position in the country, according to its
population and economy.
The climate is temperate-continental, slightly
excessive in the west and moderate in the Siret
Meadow and Brailas Big Island. Being situated
close to the Black Sea, Braila County has annual
average temperatures of over 10oC (1.5oC higher
then the rest of the plain). Annual rainfall is
low (on average 4,651 l/sq m) and has a teeming
character in summer.
The underground resources include liquid and
gaseous hydrocarbons loess deposits constitute
the raw material for inferior ceramics. The water
and mud of salty lakes have special therapeutic
qualities, spas being built nearby, but only that
of Lacu Sarat is functioning at present. In
Insuratei town, a thermal sulphurous spring, with
special therapeutic qualities, was properly
fitted, having a flow rate of 280 cu m in 24
hours and an exit temperature of 60o. The plain
is the predominant relief form, Brailas
landscape being rather monotonous and without any
natural barriers.
Although forests occupy only a small part of the
area of the county (5.5), most of them being
meadow forests, Viisoara and Camnita forests have
been declared reservations, the former for its
300 hectares which represent the relic of oak
forests from the right bank of the Calmatui, and
the latter, for its pure ash trees, spread on an
area of 1.3 ha. The flora and fauna are
characteristic to lowlands. The steppe, once
stretching endlessly, was turned into farmland,
Braila County being one of the most developed
counties in Romania as concerns agriculture.
  • The tourist patrimony of Braila County
    comprises historical, ethnographic and folkloric
    elements, Panait Istrati Memorial House,
    Nicapetre Cultural Centre (the former House of
    Art Collections), the Museums of the towns of
    Braila and Ianca, Blasova Creation Camp, the Art
    Galleries, Pro Arts Hall, Braila Historical
    Centre, Petre Stefanescu Goanga Memorial House.
  • The main tourist areas are Lacu Sarat resort,
    Brailas Small Island, Blasova, Viisoara forest.
  • The network of tourist establishments is made up
    of 13 hotels, 3 motels and inns, 4 camping
    facilities, 2 camps for pupils and preschoolers.

  • Brailas Small Island, a real inland delta,
    stretching on an area of 15,000 ha, was declared
    a mixed natural reservation of flora and fauna.
    The geographical conditions allow the
    co-existence of three types of vegetation,
    specific to the swamp, to the forest and to the
  • .Lake Jirlau (8.9 sq km) is known as an
    ornithological sanctuary, a fact for which it was
    mentioned, together with the Danube Delta and
    other habitats all over the country, on the list
    of those 2440 aquatic fauna areas of European
    importance Important bird areas in Europe
    published in 1989 in England.

On Brailas Big Island, created by the drainage
of Brailas Swamp, one can see Popina Blasova,
a proof of the herzynisch erosion of the Dobruja
Mountains, acknowledged in 1994 as a natural
monument, where two species of milfoil with
yellow flowers and a species of bell flower grow,
being specific to the Dobruja Mountains.
  • Even if it is not in an area with a maximum
    tourist importance, Braila county offers many
    possibilities for active partnerships due to the
    natural resources, on one hand , and to the
    direct connection to the Danube, on the other
  • Thus, there are considered as adequate
  • ? the extension and the modernization of the
    tourist structures in Lacu Sarat Resort
  • ? giving the Caineni Bai resort, situated on
    the area of Visani commune, back to the tourist
  • ? the integration in the tourist circuit of
    Movila Miresii Salt Lake, situated at 30 km away
    from Braila municipality, close to the commune
    with the same name.
  • ? the putting in good use of the thermal
    springs from the area of Insuratei town and
    Bertestii de Sus commune, their water presenting
    therapeutical qualities similar to the ones from
    Herculane and Felix resorts.
  • Braila county has a special tourist potential
    that, if it is put in good use, may represent an
    important element of the social-economical
    development of the county and of its contribution
    to the national tourism.

  • Related to the culture, Braila county has a
    network of specialized institutions. Thus, there
    are 215 libraries, 5 cultural houses, 101
    cultural institutions, 7 cinemas, 2 theatres and
    a musical institution.
  • The most important part in Brailas cultural life
    is played by Maria Filotti Dramatic Theatre,
    Carabus Puppet Theatre, the Vocational School
    and Braila History Museum , the last one having
    an impressive age of 125 years and an impressive
    collection of historical and archaeological
    objects and being considered one of the greatest
    cultural institutions from Romania.
  • Maria Filotti Theatre is the most interesting
    cultural objective of the city. Built in the
    middle of the 19th century and renovated in the
    80 s, the building stands out of the others
    through its architectonical value and the
    artistic embroidery of the curtain, a real piece
    of art, considered unique in Europe, due to its
    style (beads and golden thread, representing the
    sun and the moon, the laughter and the
    crying).The visitors can also see the huge
    painted-window from the monumental hall of the
    building. On the other hand, the importance of
    this building was confirmed when the theatre was
    included in the UNESCO album, together with the
    most representative buildings in Europe, destined
    to the human spirituality.
  • On the memory of the well-known soprano, Hariclea
    Hartulary Darclée, beginning with August 1995,
    every year the International Canto Festival with
    her name has been taking place at Braila.

    special fund of historical and archaeological
    collections, through which there can be seen the
    bronze helmet discovered at Gavani Braila,
    representing the traco-getic culture.
  • At the House of Art Collections, among the 3000
    pieces of plastic and decorative art, there can
    be noticed works of a great value, made by
    Theodor Aman, Nicolae Grigorescu, Theodor
    Pallady, Nicolae Tonitza, Henry Catargi and

    European transport corridors IV and IX. As
    concerns land transport we can mention the
    European roads E 60, E 577. Being situated on the
    left bank of the Danube, the county also benefits
    from the advantages of river navigation.
  • Braila County is linked to all the other regions
    of the country by roads and railways. The
    distance from Bucharest is 220 km measured on
    DN2B road. The railway to Bucharest has the same

Agriculture and forestry The agriculture, being
considered the main support of welfare and
economic growth, and also of exports increasing,
as well as the guarantor of the population's food
necessary, occupies through tradition an
important place in Braila County economy.
Braila's agriculture also represents the main way
of improvement the life standard from the rural
environment. Through its agricultural potential
(the existence of the biggest agricultural
surface in Romania, situated in Braila Great
Island, with a land surface of 60,000 ha,
entirely irrigated, and a number of 120 thousand
bovines, 400 thousand ovines, 300 thousand swines
and 2,5 million fowls, at least) Braila County
offers multiple investment opportunities
Breeding . The production valorization is
favourable, both on the internal and external
market Modern but unused buildings, in the field
of porcine and cow breeding, are another facility
offered to the potential investors. Horticulture
development, mainly the ecological one. The
establishment and the development of gross market
for the horticultural products represent another
investment opportunity. Restructuring and
development of fishing activities . On the
territory of the county there are many lakes and
ponds that could be rearranged as piscicultural
exploitations the seed beds Maxineni and Jirlau,
the fish ponds Movila Miresii, Plopu, Gradistea,
Vultureni, Zavoaia, Batogu, Chioibasesti, Coltea
and Tataru. Vegetables, fruits, milk and
cereals processing activities and the
establishment of a terminal for cereals. The
predominant agrarian character of the county
makes some activities to be extremely profitable.
Briquetting of the waste cereals (their
transforming into a fuel with high caloric power)
The creation of small stocking and
processing capacities for fodders The breeding
of exotic or rare birds and animals (pheasants,
quails, ostriches). The experience of the last
years proved that exotic animals and birds can
represent a profitable business in Braila county.
Silkworm breeding . The activity is extremely
profitable, our county having an important
tradition in the field. However, this fact
supposes the re-establishment of mulberry
plantations necessary in the silkworm breeding on
the existing salt soils. Mushrooms cultures.
This product in fresh state is not sufficient on
the market the demand being partially covered,
at high prices. That's why the construction of a
mushroom farm is welcome. Establishment of hot
houses for vegetables and flowers. The
valorization of the thermal springs and of other
thermal sources may have favourable results in
this domain, as well as in possible tourist

  • The development of the tourist danubian potential
    in the area
  • Braila Galati - Tulcea
  • The project intends to work out a problem,
    grasped by most people that visited Braila, which
    is the lack of some endowments specific for the
    passing and pleasure tourism that should
    emphasize the tourist potential of Braila-
    Galati- Tulcea area.
  • The purpose of this project is the
    establishment, through a collective action for
    the three involved counties Braila, Galati and
    Tulcea, of a chain of motels placed near the
    Danube River, with direct access from the Danube
    and the possibility of passing in Ukraine. The
    motels are to be placed so that they can be
    reached to, using one of the main roads from the
    three counties.
  • The proposed objectives occupy a surface of 1,2
    ha (the built spaces occupy 1200 square meters
    and the arranged spaces 10.800 square meters) and
    have an average capacity of 40-45 accommodations,
    with rooms of 2-3 beds, public food services and
    arrangements for nautical and pleasure sports.
    Direct access to Danube is foreseen- including to
    the Danube Delta- and to the zones of major
  • The investment functions in four buildings and
    made-up spaces which contain pleasure areas, a
    swimming pool, parking places, alleys, forecourt

  • Modernization of the tourist infrastructure of
  • Lacu Sarat Holiday Resort, Braila
  • This fact will be possible using local funds, as
    well as European financial support. A previous
    project for the modernization of the Lacu Sarat
    resort was designed through the PHARE 2001
    Program, a budget of 8 million Euro being
    allocated. This Program implies the construction
    of a salt water pool, a hall for mud packing, the
    modernization of the beach and the solarium, the
    modernization of the children and youth camp, but
    also the supplement of the accommodation
    capacity, by building a hotel of 3 stars class
    with 80 seats.
  • By the project implementation, we intend to
    develop at a high level the tourist and
    therapeutic potential represented by the brackish
    water and the sapropel mud, factors that
    correlated with the beach and the forest near the
    lake and also with the existent monastery, will
    lead to the significant increase of the tourists
    number from the country and abroad.
  • Accomplishing this project, as well as through an
    intense promotion activity, Lacu Sarat holiday
    resort can become an important national and
    international resort, especially for the
    therapeutic qualities of the mud and salt water,
    much superior to the ones of Amara and
    Techirghiol lakes.
  • Considering the promotion, this should be
    represented, besides the well-known methods
    (brochures, folders), also by the modern ones
    such as a presentation web on the Internet, the
    presentation of the resorts programmes in the
    tourist agencies offer, able to make them known
    at the tourist exhibitions and fairs, the
    spreading of promotional materials presenting the
    resorts offer of tourist services and baleary
    treatment in the Health County Institutions, the
    promotion of the resort made by the Chamber of
    Commerce, Industry and Agriculture Braila during
    the business visits organised both in the country
    and abroad.

    Lacu Sarat Resort as a tourist resort of a
    national importance with the immediate effects
    that result from this fact.
