Landmarks and tourism

Nearby are: Dortikum - a Roman castle near the village of Vrav and remains of a prehistoric settlement near the village of Baley /5 km north/, which occurred about 3600 years ago and was inhabited for over four centuries. During its existence were five successively built settlements over each other.

The remains of the ancient Roman castle Dortikum are located about a kilometer west of the village Vrav /13 km northeast of Bregovo/. The archaeological site represented a small quadrangular fort /castle/ whose longer walls were along the river. The fortress was built to defend the northwestern frontier of the Roman Empire, gradually turned into local customs and trade center, and there was a village adjoining. It was repeatedly invaded and ravaged by different tribes - Dacians, Goths, Huns, Slavs and Avars, after which it was rebuilt by the Romans. The castle ceased to exist with the decline of the Western Roman Empire. In VIII - X centuries in its place arose a little Slavo-Bulgarian settlement.
Despite declared a cultural monument, the castle Dortikum remains a little. Part of it was carried away by the river Danube.
