  • Coal miners found the remnants of of a mammoth skeleton in 2009--nicknamed Vika. Also in this area many remains of a Roman city with lots of artifacts. Very interesting location if you like history. I...  more »
  • When driving to the site, the huge coal-fired power station and open-cast mining first catch the eye. But this should be a good deterrent, because this was once the most important city of the Roman province of Moesia Superior! The dimensions of the regional capital are difficult to estimate, as only smaller areas have been excavated so far, but these are already absolutely worth seeing and unique. The mausoleum of the Roman emperor Hostilian, underground burial chambers, amphitheatre, excellently preserved thermal baths and city walls. The visitor centre is located in a reconstructed Roman villa, where you can feel directly transported to that time. A huge model of the city gives an idea of which finds are still hidden in the ground. Another special feature is a completely preserved mammoth skeleton, which can also be visited as part of the guided tour. For 600 RSD there was a two-hour English-language guided tour with a very dedicated guide, who was able to report exciting anecdotes and details as well as connections of historical conditions. Overall, I was thrilled by the visit and I am curious to see what will be discovered there soon for finds, it is definitely worth coming back again.
