Almost 2000 years ago one of the most famous disasters in human history took place. Once a thriving and sophisticated Roman city, Pompeii was buried under tons of ash and pumice following the catastrophic eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 A.D. The Archaeological Museum in Krakow presents an extraordinary exhibition revealing a spectacular excavation material related to the greatest drama of Roman times. For the first time in Poland, original exhibits from the Archaeological Museum in Naples are available for viewing. The exhibits, silent witnesses of the catastrophe, tell the viewers about the story of Pompeii and the everyday life of its inhabitants.
