The city is fairly large, with around 290,000 inhabitants and dates back to 6 AD, when the Roman Empire erected a fort there. The thermal springs of the city began being used shortly afterwards. The modern city is a mix of old and new buildings but has a number of notable architectural sites, including the Ducal Palace, Kurhaus and St. Elizabeth’s Church.
