Romania, known to ancient Rome as Dacia, is located at the crossroads between Southeast and Central Europe and the Black Sea. Accordingly Romania has a rich history, evidenced by Trajan’s Column in Rome, which depicts the Roman conquest of Dacia in the 2nd century AD. Following Rome’s withdrawal from Dacia the land came under the control of various foreign powers including nomadic tribes from Germany and the Eastern Steppe, the Byzantines and the Ottomans. You will have the chance to explore this country's fascinating history further at the excellent Archaeological Museum in Constanta.
