VI Conventus Novae Romae
The VI Conventus Novae Romae organized in Dacia is an event which tries to bring to participants the joyful of a trip in harmony with the passion for the ancient roman world.
We will visit historical places and museums. We will participate to debates and we will see movies with roman and dacian theme and in the middle of the meeting participants will spend a day in roman ancient fashion at the roman baths from Thermae Herculi still in use after 2000 years.
The remains of Trajan Bridge, the ancient roman capital of Dacia, Ulpia Traiana Sarmizegethusa and the monument from Densus are places which, near the beautiful landscapes of Romania, will complete yours memories about an area characterized in the tumultuous time of history as an island of latinitas and romanitas in the South Eastern Europe.
- BY AIR :
Bucharest has two international airports. You can easily reach Bucharest by airplane. A lot of low cost airlines offer cheap flights to Bucharest from all around Europe.
For those of you coming from outside Europe, it might be possible to save money by flying to London, Brussels, Lisabona, Barcelona, Paris or Koln and then going to Bucharest with a low cost flight, rather than flying directly to the Romanian capital.
More information are to:
- BY TRAIN :
You can reach Bucharest by train too. However if you come from outside Romania it might take a long time, therefore air travel is recommended.
