Aquincum, founded in the 1C, enjoyed its heyday in the 2C and 3C. The ruins clearly show the plan of the city: roads intersecting at right angles, a sewerage system and a variety of buildings (public baths, large covered market, craft workshops, merchants' shops and private houses). Some fine mosaic fragments are also visible. Inside the site, an archaeological museum exhibits findings (statues, bas-reliefs, coins, pottery etc) from digs carried out here.
