Near the village of Scitarjevo, close to Zagreb, are the remains of the excavated ancient Roman town of Andautonia. Andautonia was a prominent administrative, economic, cultural, and religious centre about 400 years ago. Archaeologists are still excavating the site. However, at the Andautonia Archaeological Park, visitors can view a 26,910-square-foot (2,500 sq m) area of the Roman City, including parts of the main street, city baths, colonnades, and side streets. There is a museum at the site which exhibits artefacts from the Greek and Roman periods. Tourists can also visit the present-day village of Scitarjevo to get a glimpse into rural life and see some traditional wooden housing.
