Szombathely Things to Do

  • Romkert ruin garden.

    Almost every way in the city can be shortened by gates and passageways. They can also be found in other cities, but I've never seen so many gates so well located!And some of them are really beautifull!

    This isis temple was the 3rd bigest (in surface) known in the Romain Empire, and is a rare one excavated, reconstructed and its objects exposed, in a well explained context.
