Čentur

At the time of the Roman empire there was the main road leading through this little village. Because of a great view at the surroundings a defence point was build here in Roman times.
Last century archeologists found the rests of a huge Roman military settlement here. A 80 kg heavy treasure of 12.000 Roman coins was also found in Čentur. These were made at the time of the self proclaimed Roman emperor Augustus Maxentius (306 – 312 AD).

After a glimpse on the history of the region where I live, I wish for the future to all of you

HAPPY ANNO DOMINI 2010!
