The Tourist Attractions of Braila:
Church of the Holy Archangels
There are many old churches in Braila, but the Church of the Holy Archangels is one of the most popular to visit as it is the oldest one. It was originally built in 1667 as a mosque but was converted to a church in 1808.
Little Braila Pond Natural Park
Just south of the city is a small natural park that covers a low-lying island in the middle of the Danube River. It does flood every spring, which makes it a typical wetland area similar to the main Danube Delta.
Danube Delta Biosphere Reserve
The Danube Delta is one of the largest wetland areas in the world, and an ideal place to go exploring the local Romanian countryside. This park isn’t far to the east from Braila, and you can go hiking, boating, bird-watching, fishing and more while you are there. The park covers nearly 6,000 sq km so you will have plenty of room to roam.
The famous Danube River should not be missed while you are in Braila. You can just walk along the banks, or do some swimming or fishing. You can find the river without too much trouble since it makes up the eastern border of the city.
Established in 1881, the Braila Museum houses a number of collections that include exhibits from various eras in Latvian history. There are Neolithic tools, ancient Greek artefacts, old coins, military memorabilia and a lot more.
