The Roman Empire! Who hasn’t learned about them from watching Asterix and Obelix or some other historical documentary? The fact is, they were everywhere. And nowadays there seem to be Roman ruins everywhere where people want to build subway stations. But one Roman city – Carnuntum – is safely tucked into the Austrian countryside and doesn’t have to worry about the slow advance of the subway systems…yet. Still, there were many things that the Roman Empire wasn’t bothered about at one point in time, so you never know.
Carnuntum is different in that it isn’t just excavated ruins, but it also has a rebuild Roman village in which you can walk around.
