Happy accident that we got to tour here! We learned so much about the history of the country-the good and the sad. There is a lot of Roman history there.

If you are history fan of this part of Europe it's a must to visit this museum; you will find here entire history of this region, from Greeks, Romans, Getaes,Turks, Tatars, Bulgarians, Russian-Lipovan, Scythians, Ruthenian (Ukrainian from 1956), Dobrujan Germans, Jews, Albanians. It's incredible!!!
