The Tropaeum Traiani monument and the vestiges of the Tropaeum Traiani fortress, from Adamclisi village, Dobrogea region, Romania.
Interrupting the monotony of the Dobrogea's plain, on a hill there are the ruins of the Tropaeum Traiani fortress, one of the biggest civil Roman settlement from Dobrogea, built in the same years as the commemorative monument.
The fortress have had impressive public buildings, civil constructions, towers, defense walls from stone blocks, streets covered with stone and a draining system.
H istorically, the city itself was called Tropaeum Traiani. But, with time, enemies buried it underground, so the Turks who reached this region later named it Human Church. In Turkish language: Adam Clisi.
This antique and unique settlement was brought to light in early 1900 during excavations conducted by archaeologists.
If you come here, your adventure will be rewarded by such a quiet and immovable and beautiful sight that you cannot see anywhere else in the world except in the old Greece
here at Adamclisi the most important visit is to be made at the fortress ruins.
The restored monument silently asks for respect in the memory of the thousands of soldiers who died for the Empire’s honor.
