Galati, Sights – Museum and Memorial Houses

Galati is one of the biggest cities in Romania, located in the vicinity of the oldest mountains in the country, Dobrogea’s Mountains, and crossed by the beautiful blue Danube. Although it is mainly an industrial city, many exciting and interesting places tell the story of a glorious and at the same time agitated past.

Thus, you can start discovering Galati Sights with the Museum of History, located downtown, just a few minutes away from the bus station. The permanent exhibitions impress with the presence of ancient coins, medals and decorations, archeology, ethnography and the history of nowadays Romania.

Only 10 minutes from this place, you can spend a wonderful afternoon at the Museum of Visual Art. Here you will admire amazing works of modern and contemporary art that belong to diversified techniques of painting, sculpting and decorative arts. The entrance fee is really cheap (1 euro) and the museum is closed on Mondays.

An important place that you cannot possibly miss is the Memorial House of “Alexandru Ioan Cuza”, the first prince of the united Principalities and ruler of the state of Romania. Galati brags itself as the city where this strong personality of the Romanian history spent 15 years of his life as a ruler.

Other places that you cannot possible miss are: Memorial House Costache Negri, Memorial House Hortensia Papadat Bengescu, Rural House Ion Avram Dunareanu etc

Galati, Sights – Theatres

Galati Sights offer two main options to its locals and tourists when it comes to spending a wonderful night at the theater. The first choice can be the Dramatic Theater, located downtown, recently renovated and quite popular. The architecture of the building is very impressive so you cannot possibly miss this place. Although it might be difficult for you to watch and understand an entire play (unless you speak Romanian), it is recommended not to skip this experience as it might be full of new and exciting discoveries for your perspective on life and other cultures.

However, the best option remains the Musical Theater “Nae Leonard”, as music is always “an international language”. It is here that you can enjoy a mesmerizing night of ballet or listen to the beautiful voices of the local opera singers.

The entrance fee for both theaters is quite cheap (around 4 euro) and keep in mind to avoid summer time as the actors and singers are usually on holiday and thus the buildings are closed.

It is said that Romania is simply amazing. Just browse Constanta Travel Guide and Iasi Travel Guide, continue your travels through the country and you will be easily convinced.
