The Danube Limes in Slovakia

The Danube Limes in Slovakia

 Ancient Roman Monuments on the Middle Danube, Nomination for World Heritage Status.

The RomanMilitary Camp (Fort) Gerulata in Bratislava - Rusovce and the Roman Military Camp (Fort) in Iža –"Kelemantia" constituted an integral part of the Frontiers of the Roman Empire at their Danube, north-Pannonian portion.

Their extent, floor plans, structures and construction correspond with the principles of the Roman military architecture used in the entire empire. They demonstrate a high level of the Roman strategic and logistics planning, advanced transportation technology and architecture, as well as flexible, efficient and ingenious use of available material resources in the construction of fortifications and ensuring the long-term protection of the empire's frontier.

At thesame time, they are proof of the expansion of the Roman Empire, its cosmopolitan character and interaction with the native population as well as the population in neighbouring areas beyond itsborders – the Barbaricum, which contributed to the dissemination of accomplishments of the Roman civilization in the Danube region and the incorporation of this territory of Europe in the historical context of its development in the 1st to the 4th century AD.
