Tecuci is a city in the Galaţi county of Romania (in the informal region of Moldavia), situated among wooded hills, on the right bank of the Bârlad river, and at the junction of railways from Bacău, Bârlad and Galaţi.


The area neighboring Tecuci was the scene of a fierce 1476 battle in between Moldavian Prince Stephen the Great and the Ottomans.

Under the Romanian Kingdom, it was the residence of the now-defunct Tecuci County.


The city was famous for its canned food factories, which preserve vegetables, fruits, and meat, as well as for its mustard factories.
