This first act of tolerance in the history of civilization was broutgh by Roman Emperor Constantine the Great, who was born in Niš,  the one of the oldest cities on Balkans, known for its great people, excellnet food and monumental Niš Fortress. This fortress, and others fortifications along the Danube, are just a small part of the rich cultural heritage of Serbia. Serbia is the homeland of Roman emperors. With us, you can walk through the paths of the Roman emperors and be able to see the famous archaeological site Medijana, Diana Fortress, Trajan Table,  Golubac Fortress, Petrovaradin Fotress, roman town Sirmium (today Sremska Mitrovica), and many other interesting cities, villages and beautiful parts of our country.
