General descriptionCorabia is a small Danube port located in Olt County, Romania.

Corabia is the Romanian language term for "sailing ship, specifically used for "galley". It became a great port in the 1880s.

Corabia is still one of the central spots of Olt County, with other small hamlets and villages such as Tudor Vladimirescu and Vârtop depending on it as an administrative centre. The town houses a football club, several shops and bars, the remains of a castrum identified with Sucidava, dating back to the Roman period and featuring the "Secret Fountain" (an unusual piece of engineering), and the Holy Trinity Orthodox Cathedral (one of the largest buildings of its kind in Romania), as well a monumental statue in the middle of the town square commemorating the use of Corabia's facilities in the initial attack during the Romanian War of Independence. Corabia also has an important archaeological museum with, inter alia, a remarkable collection of Roman pottery.
