We were only able to glimpse from a distance and via bus as we went through the city. While I would have like to see the column and its detailed carving up close, they were still impressive from far away.

Bring binoculars to get a view of the relief on the column. This is the Roman version of the modern docudrama, displaying all the action in the Dacian Wars (as interpreted by a cast of the stone cutters). In its day it was a technicolor...More

This is a must if you love ancient history like my husband.Even if you don't know all the history behind the column and what the reliefs depict you can still appreciate this as a work of art.

quirky boutiques and food spots sprout up on its
cobblestone streets. The neighbourhood supports unique
and homegrown businesses that cater to its longtime
residents as well as hipsters on the hunt. Hang out at
