The Roman camp from Răcari, which belongs to the town of Brădești in Dolj, will be digitized and promoted with European funds from PNRR, the leadership of Dolj County Council recently announced. 30,000 euros will be allocated to the local administration from Brădești commune for the promotion of the Roman Camp from Răcari. The site will be funded by digitization services, the creation of an application dedicated to visitors, the marking and signaling of the camp as part of the Roman Camps Route and the creation of a cultural offer for the region.
The mentioned Roman camp functioned as a military objective for the surveillance of a port on the Jiu River for almost 2 centuries, from the Daco-Roman wars until the Roman retreat, between 101 and 271 AD.
