The Monuments on Mount Optimia

The Palace of Government

The forum of The Palace of Government is the most beautiful place in the whole city. Roads are covered by gold (0.01 mm thick), and the complex is surrounded by walls and canals too. It is place of senate meetings, and it is the biggest and most expensive forum in whole empire, bigger than popular forum romanum. Many Statues and monuments stand there too. Whole forum building expenses were more than 50.000.000 sestercii(1.500.000.000$), what is extreme amount of money. Unlike most forums, the Forum Optimium is located on the city edge,

beneath the Mount Optimia.
