Roman Forum, Rome
The well-known Roman Forum is acknowledged to be the most ancient piece of architecture of the country; it was constructed in VI century AD. This place keeps the history of all the state. During the centuries lots of buildings were destroyed by fire and after that there were constructed new buildings and reconstructed still-standing basilicas, temples and everyday buildings.
