The ancient city of Carnuntum was founded in the year 6 AD when Tiberius,
who later became emperor, erected a winter camp here. It covered an area of about 10 sq. kilometres at the beginning of the 3rd century AD when it was at its largest. So far only about 0.5% of this area has been excavated. *
Carnuntum Archaeological Park
is located in Lower Austria,
45 km east of Vienna, on the Danube river,
