Drnovo is the site of the Ancient Roman town of Neviodunum. It was a settlement of the Celtic tribe Latobici and in AD 79 it was granted municipal rights and became Municipium Flavium Latobicorum Neviodunum. It had an excellent location as a river port on the Sava River along the main Roman road connecting Emona and Siscia. The settlement was abandoned in the late 4th or early 5th century. Remains of the settlement, the port, roads, and thermae have been excavated and are now an open-air museum.
