In northeastern Italy, on the banks of the River Adige, is the beautiful city of Verona. The area of the modern city was inhabited in the third century before our time. In 89 A.D., the present city was occupied by the Roman Colony. Since then, Bereznia has been growing rapidly, and the Romans have built a beautiful city. Some of the buildings are still there today.

In its history, Verona has often been exposed to invading invaders, served as a military base under the Romans, and was used as a fortress. During World War II, it was often destroyed by enemy bombs.
