For those of us from the Western Hemisphere, it is always a delight to find Roman monuments, buildings or ruins in places outside of Italy, not just throughout the Mediterranean countries, but also in places such as Trier, Germany, or Bath, England.

The Romans were all over the Balkans, and I too delight in visiting what they left behind.

So solid, eternal....

Don't miss the Pula Roman Colosseum, it's beautiful!!
I shot the opening sequuence of a film set in ancient Rome, and the story needed a fully built colosseum, so the crew traveled to Croatia!

Have a great rest of your vacation!

Just wonderful, Tash. This is my kind of stuff!

I won't be surprised if some of the buildings are older than the things displayed inside the museums. Fantastic!
