“The Roman Empire was here”
Reviewed 29 March 2012

The present edifice is a reconstruction dating from 1977 of a monument built in 109 in then Moesia Inferior, to commemorate Roman Emperor Trajan's victory over the Dacians, in 102, in the Battle of Tapae.
The monument was erected on the place where legio XXI Rapax had previously been defeated in 92

The nearby museum contains many archaeological objects, including parts of the original Roman monument.

Most people come to Dobrogea and only see the Black Sea resorts or the Danube Delta but this is an ancient land that has a rich history .

There is a bus to Adamclisi from the bus station near train station in Constanta but the best way to get there is with a car . Adamclisi is 70 km away from Constanta.
