Tracking Roman Vienna

Michaelerplatz at Vienna's city centre From the 1st to the 5th century AD, the Roman fortress Vindobona was only one of many forts lining the Northern frontier ("Limes") of the Imperium Romanum.

Carnuntum, capital of the Roman province Pannonia, was situated not far to the East of Vindobona and on the banks of the Danube. In importance, it exceeded Vindobona by far and remained a significant city right into late Antiquity. Today, you can visit extensive Roman excavations. A civilian city, also called Vindobona, was situated approximately on the same spot as ActiLingua Academy’s school building. It was completely destroyed during the age of migratory confusion. 

Little remained of Vindobona's fortress on which's ruins medieval Vienna was built. Its history is accessible via historic and archaeological texts and by wandering through modern Vienna and discovering the nomenclature of its streets and squares.
