Summary

Land of the Iron Emperors

The wide lands of the Danube were the homelands to two great European peoples, the lllyrians and the Serbs. The Illyrians provided Rome with a series of martial emperors who collectively saved the Roman world, while the Serbian Kings established the shape of the medieval Balkans. The ruins of imperial retirement palaces such as Gamzigrad and iron fortresses like Krusevac, punctuate the countryside. Not only this, Serbia hosts the remains of perhaps the earliest settled agricultural community in Europe. This tour is a little off the beaten track, but the country’s wealth of iconic archaeological sites - from remote prehistory until the birth of modern Europe - are not to be missed!

Tour highlights:

  • Explore Vinca, the Danube-side cradle of Neolithic civilisation
  • Visit extraordinary Gamzigrad, Emperor Galerius’ retirement home
  • Visit Golubac and other fortresses on the banks of the mighty Danube
  • See the medieval new town of Kruevac, built by the heroic but doomed Prince Lazar
  • The old town at Nis, a typical medieval trading city of the Balkans
