Lehliu Gară is a small town in the middle of the Bărăgan region in Romania, with a railway station and a national road linking the seaside Constanţa and the county capital, Călăraşi. Also, the new A2 free-way passes nearby, by going to the sea.

A beautiful network of interconnected lakes makes a fishing day a wild journey. Situated in the middle of the Bărăgan plains, the farmland is almost completely cultivated with cereals. The forests are in every 10 km, wild life being far from extinction.
