Roman City of CarnuntumHauptstraße 1A, 2404 Petronell-Carnuntum
Antiquity comes alive again in Carnuntum. In the reconstructed Roman city quarter you are literally a guest in the Romans‘ living rooms. All buildings have been re-erected in their original locations, giving a glimpse into Roman society. Together with decorative details and furniture a unique time frame to this epoch has thus been opened.
Carnuntum was a significant Roman metropolis on the border of the Roman Empire. It became the capital of the province of Pannonia Superior with about 50,000 inhabitants because of its location for securing the border and its proximity to key trade routes.
