Old  enough.  The first documentary attestation of the town dates from the  XIV th century, 20 january 1368. Braila is the third oldest city after Câmpulung and Curtea de Argeş. The document was  a commercial privilege signed  by Vlaicu  Voda, the ruler of former Walachia (part of the present Romania) which  was empowering the traders from Brasov city to sell and to buy goods throughout the whole Romanian territory. More, the traders   were free of taxes and custom fees, especially if they were exporting  goods  by ships, using the danubian  commercial route.

In 2018, Braila celebrates 650  years  since its first written mention into the history.

Take care,
