Transport yourself back to the days of the Roman Empire at the annual AmfiFeszt Roman Festival in Budapest from September 6-8, 2024. This immersive event brings the ancient military town of Aquincum and its amphitheater back to life.

Watch in awe as gladiators, Roman soldiers, and barbarian warriors clash in thrilling battle reenactments in the very amphitheater where these spectacles originally took place nearly 2,000 years ago. You’ll get an up-close look at how the gladiator superstars of the arenas trained and fought each other to the roar of the crowds.

But the festival is about more than just epic combat performances. You’ll also gain insights into daily life in ancient Rome and the provinces like Pannonia where Aquincum was located. Explore recreated scenes showcasing the customs, dress, and activities of Roman citizens as well as the cultures of the Germanic and Celtic tribes living beyond the empire’s borders at that time.

With handicraft workshops, games, exhibitions, lectures, and more, the AmfiFeszt offers something for all ages to immerse themselves in this fascinating period of history. Don’t miss this unique opportunity to step back into antiquity in the heart of Budapest!
