  • Important site in Roman history. If you're a buff of that era this is a fantastic feather in your cap.
  • Small but interesting, some of the Great romanian caesar came from this countryside.....
  • Still in relatively early stages of archeological discovery of the Roman town, but interesting visit nonetheless. Kids will enjoy the mammoth fossils that were found by accident and are now displayed in a special dedicated area.
  • Great place. It just shows what can be achieved with an effort of one person. Do not kiss this jewel of Serbia. There is an whole mamuth skeleton to be seen.
  • One of the more interesting places I visited.
