The Roman City

At the very edge of the Danube, in Čortanovačka forest, lie the ruins of a Roman military fortress Castra Herculis. It was built by general Hercules in 3 BC, as defense against the Avars and other tribes. The beginning of the 90s saw archeological digs on this site, and a part of the wall was uncovered, while the remains of a Roman graveyard were found back. This modest reminder of the history of the Roman Empire is probably not the most attractive location in the region, but it is certainly worthy of some attention, considering the period of time it hails from.
