Little is known about the city’s early history however it is presumed that it changed hands between the various people that inhabited the area, most notably the Dacians and Celts. After their conquest of Dacia the Romans and established a presence around the city, most notably in the Salca district of the city and in the area around modern day Băile Felix.
