In the vicinity of Baden-Baden discovered twelve sources of mineral water of different temperature and composition. In the beginning of our era, the Romans-the conquerors built their baths or baths, to which they are accustomed to at home. They built luxurious baths for the Emperor and the commanders of the bath for ordinary soldiers and even baths for horses. The rapid construction was begun during the reign of Emperor Vespasian, and later, at 213 to 217 ad, the baths were substantially expanded during the reign of Emperor Septimius bassiana of Caracalla). In the 3rd century, during the wars and raids of the Roman baths were destroyed.

Roman baths were not just baths, but in fact, the cultural center, which rested, talked and spent most of their leisure time. In the vast area housed an ornate main building with pools, saunas and rest rooms, and around the broken Park libraries, music rooms and places for athletic competition.

The dilapidated remains of Roman baths were discovered accidentally during the construction of the Friedrichsbad. In 2003 on the site of the ruins was opened the Museum of ancient culture of Roman baths. In the Museum you can see the walls age about two thousand years, the remains of an ancient Sewerage, heating and water, which once housed under the floor of the baths and pools supplied with cold and hot water. Thanks to computer animation, you can get an idea about how today's ruins looked like at the dawn of our era, in the period of its dawn.
