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.

Ľudia so záujmom o históriu, nachádzajúci sa v správnom čase a na správnom mieste (apríl až október, utorok až nedeľa, vstupy od 10:00 do 16:30 h.) sa v malom priestore múzea môžu na chvíľu dostať do atmosféry antickej minulosti. Koho zvyšky osídlenia zaujmú viac - výrazne väčšia expozícia zrekonštruovaného, starorímskeho tábora sa nachádza v cca 30 km vzdialenej rakúskej obci Petronell-Carnuntum.

The most unfriendly and unkind personel I've ever seen

I like this place. I went with my parents and we had a lovely one day-trip.

A fantastic Roman site and museum to visit a short bus ride from Bratislava. The headstones from the Roman graves discovered in the village are exceptional.

This place is interesting, but there's only a small area to explore. It's quite far away from the centre of Bratislava, so I'd only recommend going if you're already in the area, otherwise it's not really worth traveling to.

Seaplane Harbour Museum

The Seaplane Harbour is the newest and one of the most exciting museums in Tallinn. It tells stories about the Estonian maritime and military history. The museum’s display, that comprises of more than a couple of hundred large exhibits, revitalizes the colourful history of Estonia.

British built submarine Lembit weighing 600 tones is the centrepiece of the new museum. Built in 1936 for the Estonian navy, Lembit served in the World War II under the Soviet flag. It remained in service for 75 years being the oldest submarine in the World still in use until it was hauled ashore in 2011. Despite its long history, Lembit is still in an excellent condition offering a glimpse of the 1930s art of technology.

Another exciting attraction is a full-scale replica of Short Type 184, a British pre-World War II seaplane, which was also used by the Estonian armed forces. Short Type 184 has earned its place in military history by being the first aircraft ever to attack an enemy’s ship with an air-launched torpedo. Since none of the original seaplanes have survived, the replica in Seaplane Harbour is the only full-size representation of the aircraft in the whole World.

Simulators mimicking a flight above Tallinn, around-the-world journey in the yellow submarine, navigating on the Tallinn bay make this museum heaven for kids or adventurous adults.

Seaplane Harbour operates in architecturally unique hangars built almost a century ago, in 1916 and 1917, as a part of Peter the Great sea fortress. These hangars are the World’s first reinforced concrete shell structures of such a great size. Charles Lindbergh, the man who performed the first solo flight across the Atlantic Ocean, landed here in 1930s.

On the outdoor area visitors can tour a collection of historic ships, including the Suur Tõll, Europe's largest steam-powered icebreaker.
