Smederevo and Viminacium Tour 1

Smederevo and Viminacium Tour 1




Visit to Viminacium, the former significant Roman military camp as the main center of defense of this part of the Limes /Danube/ frontier from the 2nd century A.D., nowadays the impressive Archaeological Complex covering surface over 450 hectares, provide a delightful experience to every visitor. There are remarkable archaeological excavations waiting to be discovered, such are the Imperial Mausoleum, luxurious thermal baths covered with wonderful and well-preserved mosaics and fresco paintings of exceptional beauty, impressive number of tombs and graves, as well as the numismatics and jewellery collections. Viminacium was devastated and destroyed in the middle of the 5th century, and it remained forgotten like Pompeii, which disappeared under a flood of lava from Vesuvius in 79 A.D. That analogy and the recognition that the remains of the Roman town and the military camp represent a site of exceptional interest explains why Viminacium has been called the Balkan Pompeii….
