Folk tradition has preserved the Rock of Bölcske („bölcskei-szikla”) in the River Danube for centuries, as an underwater reef and a good place to catch fish. During the archeological discoveries of the ’80s, the cliff turned out to be the ruin of a Roman fortress, during the discovery of which 18 pieces of Roman stone carvings with reliefs and superscriptions were brought to the surface with the help of divers.
