Now, we will travel 80 years back in time. To look, what changed history once and for all. It was bad weather. Thunderstorms and floods in northern Germania forced Germans to stop fighting with Romans, and rescue their homes from devastating disaster. The Romans exploited it, and attacked the Germans, who had other problems this time. Romans pushed them to the Rhein river, that time much bigger for floods. Germans mostly drowned, and remnants fled to north. Marcus Aurelius, the Caesar, conquered whole area in the South of the Rhein. Germans were weakened... Take look on this newspaper:


... After that Roman empire became the greatest empire on the whole Earth. But, Germans may strike back anytime. Roman empire has not certain world dominance. What will happen? Stop with "history" now, and take look at the Optimia. Now on the other Places of Interest, including squares and plazas.
