Ancient Buda (Óbuda) was already inhabited in the Palaeolithic Age, and this is where the Romans built the city of Aquincum, a military camp, civil town and the administrative centre of the Roman province of Pannonia Inferior. One can visit the ruins of the Roman military amphitheatre and the remnants of the civil town, walking over the partly excavated and renovated streets of the antique city center; the Aquincum Museum has an exhibition of valuables unearthed in the area.
