Gerulata is a country museum (only open in summer) on the site where archaeologists excavated the remains of a Roman military camp and settlement. Soldiers and civilians lived here from the second half of the 1st century to the end of the 4th century. The museum can be reached by taking the turn at the Church of St. Mary Magdalene.
The remains of Roman forum, fragments of buildings and grave stones, and a well have been found here. In the pavilion bronze, iron, clay and stone artefacts from the day to day existence of people in this unusual locality are presented. Although ancient Gerulata was mentioned in written sources as early as the 16th century, its exact location remained uknown to treasures seekers. It was only as late as 1965 that archaeologist Ján Dekan found signs of two forts. The first was destroyed by the Marcommans after a hundred years of existence and the other was built by the Romans as a part of the border fortification called Limes Romanus.
