Abstract: The Roman Empire has left many traces in world history with various achievements. One of them is the fortresses. Roman fortresses were built in such a way that for many years afterwards their remains are still visible, without being erased by time, conquerors and atmospheric conditions. Even before the Roman conquest, the peoples along the Danube River understood that the place was suitable for living. The fortresses considered in the report are not only Roman, but everywhere the Romans repaired and fortified them. The Bulgarians used them, as the Danube River has been a natural border between the countries for a long time. The most important cities for the Roman Empire and beyond were: Bononia, Ulpia Escus, Nove, Sexaginda Prista, Transmariska and Durostorum. In the present days most of them are sites of national tourist importance.
