" Braila, city and county, represent a space of vivacity and energy in the country’s 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 longitude.

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 times.

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 civilisation.

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 Braila’s 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 Edison’s 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, Braila’s 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 Braila’s history. In 1911, year of maximum commercial activity, Braila’s 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. Braila’s 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 city’s 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 Braila’s 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, Braila’s 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, Braila’s 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.

Braila’s 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 steppe.

.LakeJirlau (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 Braila’s Big Island, created by the drainage of Braila’s 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 hand.

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 circuit;

► 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 Braila’s 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.

A great interest in the cultural life of Braila is presented by the “Panait Istrati Memorial Exhibition”, opened in 1984, with the occasion of the centenary of the famous writer’s birth, named “Gorki of the Balkans” by Romain Rolland.

The historical section of Braila Museum has a 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 others.

The monumental sculpture is represented by the Emperor Trajan’s bronze statue with stone and marble bed-plate from the Saint Archangels’ Square and Ecaterina Teodoroiu’s statue also made of bronze.

The “Saint Archangels Mihail and Gavriil” Curch with an age of 250 years, is a Turkish pray house turned into an Orthodox Church, keeping its rectangular shape, reproducing the Mohammedan mecet’s type.That is why it is one of the rare European Orthodox churches without a derrick.

The Lippovan’s Metropolitan Church – the international centre of the old communion – is also in Braila municipality.

During the time, but especially between the two World Wars, many personalities of the Romanian and European civilisations were “born” in Braila’s schools, especially in “Nicolae Balcescu” National College: philosophers Nae Ionescu and Anton Dumitriu, geriatrician Ana Aslan, geologist Gh.M.Murgoci, cybernetics’ engineer Edmond Nicolau, writers Panait Istrati, Panait Cerna, Anton Bacalbasa, Mihail Sebastian, D.P.Perpessicius, Fănuş Neagu; lyrical artists Hariclea Hartulary Darclée, Petre Ştefănescu Goanga; actors Maria Filotti, Irina Răchiţeanu Sirianu, Ştefan Mihăilescu Brăila.

Access

This area has accessible transport roads, Braila County being situated at the intersection of two 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 route and the distance is quite the same.

Taxation

The TAV is the same all over the country: 19%.

The local taxes are pretty lower relative to other regions of the country and are negotiable for the important investors who generate employment. There are only two kinds of local taxes: the tax on the land (if buying) and the tax on the buildings.

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)

Consiliul Judetean Braila

Directia Strategii, Integrare Europeana, Relatii Internationale

slide15

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 investments.

Ianca Airport

  • Ianca Airport is situated in the S-SV part of Braila County at a distance of 50 km from Braila County residence, on the DN 2B, km. 61. It is equidistant in comparison with the localities from the border counties, Galati, Buzau, Ialomita.

By the modernization of Ianca Airport infrastructure with a length of 2.500 meters, a width of 80 meters and the concrete track, it is intended to facilitate the commercial traffic of passengers and cargo.
