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...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...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....More

Yes, a day trip fro Belgrade is possible, but it takes about 3.5 hours by car, or in the best case 2.5 from Belgrade to Felix Romuliana.
