Tour Flow

#YourSerbiaHost will pick you up from your Belgrade accommodation in the morning (usual start time is 9am). From Belgrade to Felix Romuliana you’ll travel partly on a highway through the valley of Morava River. The valley is known as the only natural passage through the Balkan peninsula.

Felix Romuliana is the palace constructed for Roman Emperor Galerius in the IV century AD. It’s located in the middle of corn fields, close to nearby village Gamzigrad in East Serbia. During the site visit you’ll learn why the Emperor named the palace Felix Romuliana. Was he ever able to live in his luxurious palace? The guide will share stories about why he was remembered as a brutal  Christian prosecutor, and what kind of horrible disease was the cause of his death. You’ll see the location of the nearby hill Magura where both him and his mother were apotheosized.

From Gamzigrad you’ll continue to Zaječar – a lovely local town with an excellent museum which holds original findings from the Felix Romuliana site. The items which couldn’t be preserved in the open were relocated here, such as floor mosaics, statues, decorations, etc . This museum is often regarded as an unexpected highlight of the tour. You’ll also learn a bit about the local history with a walk through the exhibition from prehistory to modern times.

For lunch we will take you to a local restaurant to try some East Serbia cooking.

After lunch you’ll head to Belgrade directly. Usual drop off time is around 6pm.

We had fabulous day visiting Felix Romuliana and on our way back we visited Golubac Fortress. The trip, the food, all the new things that we saw, made that sunny day a really great day. Miljan thank you for the lovely day.

Miljan took me to visit the Felix Romuliana site, providing great info throughout. If you enjoy Roman history, then this is a very fascinating tour. After his guided tour, I was able to just walk around and explore before we headed to the next stop. Unlike some other Roman sites I've been to, you can mostly walk wherever you want, which was nice to be able to see things in as much detail as you like. In addition to the site itself, we went across the beautiful Serbian countryside where Miljan also provided great background info on the region's history and Serbia in general. After visiting the site, he took me to a few other locations, including a stop for some delicious, authentic Serbian food. Miljan is a great tour guide and provided a very enjoyable experience!
