Argument

The goal of the "Danube Limes Brand" project is the Extension of The Frontiers of the Roman Empire, World Heritage Site, in lower Danube countries. The Danube Limes contains a wide range of cultural sites such as: fortification systems, forts, fortresses, cities, ports with all elements of the Ancient Roman world.

The Romanian section of the Limes has a length of 1075 Km and it carries fortification spanning its length, such as: Drobeta, Sucidava, Capidava, Carsium, Troesmis, Dinogetia, Noviodunum and Halmyris.

UNESCO Tentative List

Nine archaeological sites have been selected by the National Institute of Heritage and local communities for the Romanian UNESCO Tentative List.

The nomination of these historical monuments on the World Heritage List will essentially contribute to the protection, conservation and promotion of national cultural heritage and ensure the sustainable development of the Danube region.

Taking into account the extremely high potential the Danube limes has in Romania, but exploited in an unsatisfactory manner, the project intends to undertake a better promotion of all interesting archaeological and tourism sites across the Romanian Danube limes.

The Initiative

The National Institute of Heritage is a partner within the Danube Limes Brand project, financed by the South East Europe Transnational Cooperation Programme (SEE).

The main goal is the Extension of The Frontiers of the Roman Empire, World Heritage Site, in lower Danube countries, listed by UNESCO as a cross-border site.
The project is being implemented by 9 partners from: Austria (project leader), Romania, Slovakia, Hungary, Croatia, Italy, Serbia and Bulgaria.
