Acquincum Ruins

Before there was Budapest, there was Buda and Pest.  And way before that was the Roman town of Acquincum.  I have never been one to be too interested in Roman ruins, so considering the temperature was hovering around 95 degrees with full sun above, it’s amazing I was able to take any pictures at all.  Fortunately there was an air-conditioned museum inside, where of course we weren’t allowed to take pictures.  Still, here is one factual thing for those interested: some of the ruins have been built up a bit to give visitors a better sense of what it looked like.  There’s a red brick line to show the border of what’s original and what’s been added on.
