Ulpia Traiana Sarmizegetusa, the former capital of Roman Dacia, was included in the Roman Emperors Route international project.
Representatives of the National Tourism Authority notified the Museum of Dacian and Roman Civilisation (MCDR) in Deva that one of the projects in which the institution is involved got official recognition from the Council of Europe, reports local Adevarul.
The Roman Emperors Route includes archeological sites from Romania, Bulgaria, Serbia, and Croatia.
Together with the Danube Wine route, the Roman Emperors Route has been certified as a European cultural route by the Council of Europe.
“This project’s recognition will ensure a greater international visibility for the most important historical site under managed by MCRD Deva,” said Liliana Ţolaş, manager of the Museum of Dacian and Roman Civilisation.
Adamclisi, Histria, Apulum and Rosia Montana sites in Romania have also been selected to be part of the Roman Emperors Route, according to museum representatives.
Ulpia Traiana Sarmizegetusa was the capital and the largest city of Roman Dacia, in the 2nd and 3rd centuries.
