Visit to Aquincum and Coffee & Chat

September 8, 2023 @ 10:00 am 2:00 pm

Due to popular demand, we will visit the fascinating archaeological park of Aquincum. Aquincum was a significant Roman city located in the Pannonia province, which is now part of Budapest. After the Romans defeated a Celtic tribe that had inhabited the area since 400 B.C., the city was founded. In the late nineteenth century, the ruins of the ancient Roman city were discovered, and it is now one of Hungary’s largest archaeological sites. Aquincum was reconstructed between 1960 and 1970, and it was primarily built between the second and third centuries. Although Aquincum was much more extensive than what we can see today, only a third of the city center has been excavated. Our plan is to explore the park, learn about Hungary’s hidden Roman heritage, and then enjoy some refreshments nearby.
