The exhibition presents the history of archaeological works (from 1975 till now) of this important mediaeval trading city, at the end of the road from Brasov and close to crossing over the Danube at Vadu Oii, documented in 1431 as customs, in the time Prince Dan II. Oraşul de Floci, with houses, shops, workshops, barns, churches, cemeteries, is the former residence of Ialomiţa, of the subprefect and captain, and saw a flourishing period in the time of Prince Matei Basarab (first half of the 17th century), when an army of 15,000 people stationed here for the defence of the zone against Turkish incursion.
