10000$ Trofeul Ilie Nastase 7, Galati, Romania

Surface: Clay

Galaţi (/ga'laʦʲ/) is a city in eastern Romania, the capital city of Galaţi County on the banks of the Danube, very close to Brăila. The official website estimates its population as of 2005 at 331,360, making it Romania's 7th largest city.
The name of the city appears to have derived from Cuman galat, which was borrowed from Arabic qal'at (fortress). There have been other etymologies suggested, such as Serbian galac, but the galat root also appears in nearby toponyms, some of which show clearly a Cuman origin, for example Gălăţui Lake, which has the typical Cuman -ui suffix for "water". This area was inhabited by Celts in antiquity, and a derivation from Galatia (Gaul) is possible, but unlikely.
The first mention of the city dates from 1445. In 1789, during the Russo-Turkish War, Galaţi was burnt down by the forces of Russian general Mikhail Kamensky.

Galaţi has a university, the Universitatea Dunărea de Jos (Lower Danube University), founded in 1948 and given university status in 1974, and a teacher-training college as well as a host of other educational and cultural institutions. Among these, the Vasile Alecsandri National College - ranks as the first pre-university level educational institution in Galaţi.
