Built along the Danube bank, a city and military camp of the province Pannonia which was part of the Roman Empire has left behind numerous relics in today’s area of Budapest. The civilian settlement and the military base featured baths, theatres, aqueducts, which together with the water organ found in Aquincum are integral parts of the history of the district and are lively memories for people living here now. Illustrated with photographs, this article surveys all of them one by one, and draws a parallel between the culture of a period two millennia ago with the contemporary life of the same region, illustrated with photographs.
