Galati Things to Do

  • Fishing on the banks of the Danube 4 more images

    by CTrandafir Written Feb 1, 2007

    Plenty places to fish around Galati if thats your thing. Banks of the Danube...many fish from the Faleaza. The Siret is pretty popular and can be accessed from the city or if you want a picturesque spot get yourself to Barbosi train station just outside town (buses go there and obviously trains from the main train station in town) then from Barbosi continue walking the path away from town...its a bit of a walk but worth it when you get there...beautiful peaceful spot with a bit of beach. Few stray dogs around like everywhere in Romania but they generally dont do any harm just make sure your fishing rod doesnt threaten them if walking past them.

    There is also a lake just outside the city but its not that scenic although popular with locals and its right beside the enormous steel factory so waste is a bit of a danger.

    The Faleaza is a long walkway along the banks of the Danube littered with modern art sculptures. It takes about half an hour to walk and there are quite a few restaurants and bars as you near the port. Very enjoyable.

    The Old Gate of the City is a ruin (however, still standing not far from the city centre - maybe it will feature one day in this album). This is what I like to call the New Gate of the City - named by the artist 'Poarta Povestilor' ('The Gate of Fairytales'), one of the 'scrap' sculptures on the bank of the river - my favourite!

Galati Restaurants

    The food does not differ much from other places in town, but it's fairly restaurant and that's what makes it a hot spot. (And the central position, of course!) I like the garden of the restaurant: shady and spacey...

    Favorite Dish: The chicken crepes and the classic Tiramisu...

    Many 'chariots of fire' like the one in the picture travel to and around Galati county. Watch out for them in traffic!!!!
    They are used for transportation purposes and not to impress tourists as some of my visitors suggested :o)))

    Getting around Galati is easy with the hundreds of maxi taxis which trawl the city. They are numbered by the routes and have designated stops but if you can figure this out then you just jump on and jump off at your stop and hand the driver your money which is normally about 1 leu. Very cheap. Most play music, sometimes a bit on the loud side but this makes for a relaxing journey.

    Favorite thing: Galati is the place where RADU LUPU, the great Romanian pianist, was born on November 30th, 1945.

    Radu Lupu was nominated by the Philips Music Group as one of the best 68 pianists of the 20-th Century.
