Sarmizegetusa Regia – the sacred, secretive Dacian capital

This was the capital city and the most important military, religious and political centre of the Dacian state. You will be amazed to discover how technically skilled dacians were – just look at the ceramic pipes they used to transport water for water, the water drainage, the paved roads and of course the fortifications.

Included in UNESCO World Heritage Sites, the fortified settlement of Sarmizegetusa Regia – the ancient capital of the Dacian Kingdom – is one of the oldest and most mysterious historical sites in Romania and not only.

The place positioned strategically at 1200 meters altitude and protected by a chain of fortresses, reached the peak of its glorious times during the reign of the mythical dacian king Decebal (Decebalus).
