Description

Discover the 2000-year-old seat of a province of the ancient Roman Empire, right inside Budapest. During the first to fourth centuries AD, Pannonia Province was the eastern boundary of the empire, and its centre was in what is today "モbuda" in north Buda. Named Aquincum, it had residential quarters for civilians and the military, palaces (which had underfloor heating), baths and sanctuaries. On the Pest side of River Danube, fortresses defended the empire. In many parts of Buda and Pest you're walking aove ruins from the Roman times without even realizing it. Major excavation sites can be visited, including two amphitheaters. River Danube served as the natural frontier – the limes – of the Roman Empire, and remains of settlements from the Roman times can be seen along the river.
