Bath was first built by the Romans almost 2000 years ago. The Romans established Bath as a spa resort, taking advantage of the hot springs in the area. Centuries later, Bath played a giant role in Britain's wool trade. Now, this city in Western England is a major tourist attraction. For more information on the history and significance of Bath, check out the UNESCO World Heritage website.
