In the Footsteps of Roman Emperors
Follow the footsteps of Roman emperors through one of Europe’s cultural routes in the area of northern and central Dalmatia. We will start in the miraculous town of Nin, situated on a small island in the middle of a sandy lagoon, containing the remnants of a temple and one of the oldest preserved Illyrian-Roman ships – a serilia. The Roman Forum in the city of Zadar is the largest on the east coast of the Adriatic, and it also contains an interesting capitol and the remains of the wall built by Emperor Augustus, as well as rich collections of ancient artefacts in the Archaeological Museum and the one-of-a-kind Museum of Ancient Glass. Discover the remains of the capital city of the Roman province of Illyricum – Salona, and pay a visit to the palace of Roman Emperor Diocletian, out of which grew the modern city of Split. Rediscover the lost ancient cities of Asseria, containing walls built during Emperor Trajan, and Burnum inside Krka National Park, which was mentioned by Pliny the Elder, and contains the remains of the only military amphitheatre.
