Felix Romuliana

The remains of the magnificent Roman palace of Felix Romuliana are located near Zaječar. It is one of the best-preserved Roman monuments in Serbia, and is included in the UNESCO list of world cultural heritage. The Roman emperor Galerius built the palace in his birthplace and named it after his mother, Romula, hoping that he would enjoy its beauty after abdicating.

The remains of a palace divided into two parts are inside the walls that once protected the city from barbarian attacks. In the southern part are the remains of a large temple with two crypts, as well as an old Roman bath. On the northern half of the site, there is a well-preserved complex of the imperial palace with a small temple and an altar where pagan rituals were once performed.
