Central Dalmatia is a region rich in cultural heritage, and the marks of its invaders have been left for the modern visitor to see. Nowhere is this more true than with the Romans, whose time in Central Dalmatia has been marked for posterity with architectural treasures such as UNESCO World Heritage Site, Diocletian’s Palace, in Split, and the magnificent ruins of Salona.
Take a closer look, however, and the remains of the Roman presence is actually much more widespread. Several years ago, the Central Dalmatia Tourist Board initiated a campaign to clean up and make signs for the Roman roads of Central Dalmatia, so that tourists might walk the same roads of the Roman legions some 2,000 years ago. The project started near Dugopolje.
Originally exhibited in Dugopolje, in association with the Dugopolje Tourist Board, the exhibition ‘The Roads of the Emperors: Roman Roads of Central Dalmatia’ opened at the Zagreb Archaeological Museum on April 6.
