Videle is of some importance as a railway junction, for the railway track heading south to Bulgaria leaves the main Walachian East-West-railway from Bucharest to Craiova.
Located adjacent to the main hospital grounds, the local 'Residential Hospital for Incurable Children' gained international notoriety for its appalling conditions and deprivations. These became public following the overthrow of the Ceaușescu government and a damning report by an investigative journalist from The Washington Post in 1990.
