The host will be the Museum of Dacian and Roman Civilization in Deva, a town located on the left bank of the Mures River in south-western part of Transylvania, an area rich in archaeological sites and monuments. The breath-taking landscape of Mures Valley completes this environment with a beautiful rural region and the wooded gentle slopes of the Apuseni Mountains and Poiana Rusca. Not far you will find the Retezat Nature Reserve and the Tara Hategului Dinosaur Geopark, both of which have recently been recently recognized as UNESCO-protected sites.
Visitors are greeted by the Fortress of Deva, a medieval fortress that has been partially restored. We pride ourselves with other significant archaeological monuments, such as: medieval Corvin Castle from Hunedoara, the Roman city of Ulpia Traiana Sarmizegetusa, the Roman forts at Vețel – Micia and Cigmău, the Roman baths at Geoagiu – Germisara and Călan – Aquae, the medieval stone churches in Țara Hațegului, and the Dacian Fortresses in the Orăștie Mountains, included in 1999 on the UNESCO World Heritage List. We should also add an impressive number of prehistoric settlements, fortifications and necropolises, which make Hunedoara County one of Romania’s richest archaeological regions.
