Slobozia is a city in the Ialomita county, Romania. The town was built on the place of the village "Vaideei". The name can be read as "vai de ei" which means "poor them/pity them".

The name of "Slobozia" come from the word "slobod" and means "free". As it is located in the middle of flat land (Baragan plain), it was very vulnerable to tatar and Ottoman incursions. To encourage peasants to settle there, they were excepted from some taxes, hence the name.
