Sexaginta Prista to receive facelift

The Roman heritage of the Balkans is about to get a boost with an EU-funded renovation project of the Roman fortress Sexaginta Prista near the city of Ruse, Bulgaria.

Sexaginta Prista, "the port town of the sixty ships," will receive restoration of two buildings, the construction of a ramp to facilitate access, and future decorative lighting. Officials hope that the site will become a popular student destination.
