Nice ruins of a Roman palace. Interesting for antiquity Roman history lover. In my opinion too small and with no extraordinary architectural values to be listed on UNESCO List as a single place... Maybe they should add some more ruins related to Rome in the Serbian territory as a common inscription? Nevertheless important and worth a visit.

It is not so monumental as Colosseum for example, but still fascinating. Perfect scenography for the fascinating historical story that you have already knew or you will hear there from a kind guide. Do not miss to visit National museum in Zajecar where you can see small but effective exhibition related to Felix Romuliana.

A beautiful Archaeological site in Eastern Serbia that is worth a visit. The famous mosaics are to be seen in the museum in Zajecar

This place is incredible. Bit off the beaten track but an absolute must-see for anyone with an interest in Roman history. We were lucky to be there on a beautiful summer evening and there were no other visitors so it was very evocative. Former Roman imperial palace with extensive ruins, just a beautiful place to walk around

Once you've entered the site, make sure to go to the tourist info corner, connect to the wifi and download the game that takes you around most buildings and rooms. There are almost no fences or limits as to where you can go so with a little guidance the game gives you (and the super adventurous feeling) you can truly... More

Our visit to this well preserved Roman palace was the highlight of our trip to Serbia. Our guide was very knowledgeable and spoke excellent English. I would travel here again.

It's not easy to get there, and once you do, there's not much to see. All the ear and tear of your personal automobile, you'd think they government might do a little bit more to make the road that proudly displays their history better. I do salute the handful of dedicated historians, however, who do what they can with the... More

We travelled to Felix Romuliana from Vidin in Bulgaria and it was very well worth the short drive. Seldom is it possible to visit such a site in such peace and tranquility. Although a small coach party arrive as we did, the site is so large that they did not affect our visit and left before we did. For quite... More

Few people know that the history of Christianity began in this very place. The Imperator Galerius (Felix Romulliana named after his mother Romula) compiled Edict of Toleration towards Christians and the document was to be made Christianity as the official religion of the Roman Empire. Unfortunately, the Emperor Galerius died in 311, so his Edict of Tolerance has never taken... More

Very important, yet not enough famous late-Roman archeological site. Part of the UNESCO World heritage list. Imperial palace in its own right. Well perserved. Cheep entrance, ample parking space. Must visit if you're in the area.
