This was probably the most unexpected 'find' for us in √Čvora. We knew there were some Roman Baths, but couldn't really believe they were in the huge Town Hall.
We were a little embarrassed in case we had made a mistake so went cautiously into the building past a lot of people using internet terminals, approached the desk where we asked if we could see the Baths. We were directed round a corner and this is what we saw - the person is a painting by the way, to give an idea of scale.
It's quite difficult to get a good view because the viewing area is directly above the edge of the baths. A wide angle lens would be really useful somewhere like this.
Everything is remarkably well preserved, and here's why. - You can see signs of other building work and also wall decorations above the dark stonework that surrounds the bath. This is because there was a internal floor covering the bath, and a circular meeting room directly above.
The Baths were discovered during renovations - in 1994..
