Going back over two thousand years, the history of the town starts with the Romans who constructed the first road station next to the Hubelj River, expanding it to the mighty military fort Castrum Ad Fluvium Frigidum (‘Fortress by the Cold River’) designed to protect the east border of the Roman Empire.
