An interesting archaeological site in the immediate vicinity of the hustle and bustle of the city of Bratislava is Villa Rustica located in the forests of Dúbravka, the urban district of Bratislava. It is a type of residential Roman building equipped with a water system serving as a bath.

The remains of this building were discovered in 1982. These uncovered remains of settlements in the territory of Bratislava are a testament to the life of society at a time when the Roman Empire reached the Danube. The researchers believe that there was a large estate in these places, which included, in addition to the spa house, the residence of the owner of the estate, the sanctuary and the farm and residential buildings.

In 1990, Villa Rustica was declared a national cultural monument, which is freely accessible to the general public. Access to the monument is quite simple and represents a pleasant walk through the woods, which can be managed by children. The easiest access is from "Technické sklo" in Dúbravka by green tourist trail.
