In 1939, the Romanian state signed a contract with the German company Ferrostaal of Essen to build a factory (called "Ucea") on the site of what is now Victoria. The contract was canceled after Romania declared war on Germany in 1944, during World War II.

The building of the town began in 1949 and it had the provisional names of "Colonia Ucea" and "Ucea Roșie" (Red Ucea), only to be changed in November 1954 to Victoria.

ClimateEdit

Victoria has a warm-summer humid continental climate (Dfb in the Köppen climate classification).
