About Băilești

The first archeological discoveries which prove the living of the fireplace of the city date back to the period of the years 680 – 1025.

As a locality name, Băilești, comes from the name “Băilă”, a name of leader of sheep. Băilă together with his own made a stop for winter stay, years at row, in this area and, therefore, appeared the village Băilești.

Being a quite known locality among the weekly burgs or the annual fairs, by the large number of inhabitants, Băilești is found in the cartography documents of the times, as it is the chart executed in the year 1718 by Anton Maria del Chiaro.

On the 14th (26th) of September 1828 at Băilești, takes place an important battle between the Turks (26.000 military men and 30 cannons) which occupied the village, and the Russian troops, commanded by the general Friedrich Caspar von Geismar (4.500 military men and 14 cannons), together with whom there also fights a detachment of 1200 pandours, following the battle, the Turks were expelled.

The tempestuous year 1907, which constitutes the apogee of the fight of the Romanian peasants for the social rights, meant an atrocious trial for Băilești. Here the revolters stood for 5 days against the repression forces, and the restraining of the rebelion was atrocious: 42 deceased, over 100 injured, over 300 arrested and the village Băilești was bombarded by the cannons of the army.

On the 3rd of May 1921, the rural commune Băilești (in that period it was the largest rural commune from the country) became an urban commune.
