Roman Games in Rusovce expand

THE ROMAN Games that open at the ancient Roman Gerulata military encampment in Rusovce on July 2 at 10:00 will expand beyond their usual border for the first time. Since originating in 1999, the Games have grown into a popular event for families, so the Bratislava City Museum, which organises the event, has decided to move it into the local football stadium.

Now in its eighth year, the festival will be more exciting than ever, due to greater Austrian-Slovak cross-border cooperation. As well as recreating Roman customs and traditions, it will also reenact ancient Roman games attended by Caesar and his followers, complete with splendid costumes and period hairstyles. Roman soldiers and gladiators will fight for their lives with rare weapons, such as swords, a trident and nets. Children can take part in the various plays and workshops being held between 10:00 and 15:00 within the Small Roman Games in the Antic Gerulata site.

The Roman Games is not the only event related to the history of ancient Rome this summer. Within the Romanies Arrived to Us cycle, citizens and visitors to Rusovce can make a trip into the lost world of ancient Rome every Tuesday.
