Gerulata was a Roman military camp located near today's Rusovce, a borough of Bratislava. It was part of the Roman province Pannonia and built in the 2nd century as a part of the Limes Romanus system. It was abandoned in the 4th century, when Roman legions withdrew from Pannonia.

Today there is a museum, which is part of the Bratislava City Museum. The most preserved object is a quadrilateral building 30 metres long and 30 metres wide, with 2.4 metre thick walls.

Totally not worth the entry fee. It's literally one small villa and a small room which is the "museum". Not sure how they justify the price? The grass was long, the site was not well maintained, I just don't get it. Avoid.

Visited with Bratislava card. The staff was very kind and allowed us to go in 5mins early. Some interactive xbox game indoors and some exhibits. The outside area is mostly ruins.

There is a small museum showing some very interesting parts of Roman history. Unfortunately, the museum fee can only be paid in cash. It would have been nice if there had been more descriptions about how it came that the Romans settled there and how life was going on when people lived there. It would also have been nice if the staff had taken time to tell us some about the place as we the only visitors at the time and she just sat there and looked like it was the most boring job in the world.

Interesting Roman site in Rusovce. We visited it on Limes Day - special event in September. The program made this place absolutely more attractive and we liked it very much. Otherwise this place is not as significant for famillies or travelers to visit it except from real lovers of history. There is museum of Roman camp excavations from this area, small but well maintained. We appreciated especially leaflets in more foreign languagues (italian, spanish, russian, etc...) not only in English or German.

If you are interested in history. If you wont to learn more a bout Roman state, and the other nations, how they lived, what were their relations, what were their customs, what hapend to them true time, you should visit this place. The written material is translated in English. The museum is placed in little village Rusovce, near Bratislava. From Bratislava city center there are several city busses that are going in this direction. The journey last about 20 minutes.

Santa Maria in Trastevere

The Basilica of Santa Maria in Trastevere is one of the oldest churches of Rome. The basic floor plan and wall structure of the church date back to the 340s, and much of the structure to 1140-43. The first sanctuary was built in 221 and 227 by Pope Callixtus I and later completed by Pope Julius I. 

The inscription on the episcopal throne states that this is the first church in Rome dedicated to Mary, mother of Jesus, although some claim that privilege belongs to the Basilica di Santa Maria Maggiore. A Christian house-church was founded here about 220 by Pope Saint Callixtus I (217-222) on the site of the Taberna meritoria, a refuge for retired soldiers. The area was made available for Christian use by Emperor Alexander Severus when he settled a dispute between the Christians and tavern-keepers.

The church underwent two restorations in the fifth and eighth centuries and in 1140-43 it was re-erected on its old foundations under Pope Innocent II.
