Living Danube Limes Valorising cultural heritage and fostering sustainable tourism by LIVING the common heritage on the DANUBE LIMES as basis for a Cultural Route

Fostering a common bond in the Danube Region via heritage shared by all Danube countries is the main aim of the Danube Transnational Programme project “Living Danube Limes”. The Roman Danube Limes heritage and the Danube itself connect Central Europe with South-Eastern Europe and Living Danube Limes will further enhance that connection by highlighting the common heritage and the potential it holds for future development.

Living Danube Limes will

  • foster a common Roman brand for the Danube countries,
  • pave the ground for a Cultural Route spanning the whole Danube Region,
  • develop strategies for preservation and management of cultural and natural heritage and
  • foster green and sustainable tourism development.

For reaching this goal, Living Danube Limes follows a holistic approach to these issues, including

  • archaeology and history,
  • museums as dissemination hubs for both academia and the broad public,
  • protection measures for cultural heritage and sustainable tourism solutions.
  • Academia and broad public are directly linked via the reconstruction of the 4th century CE Danube patrol vessel, a lusoria, which is also the physical link between the identified pilot sites and the partner countries themselves.

All these aspects of Living Danube Limes are equally important, interlinked and directly dependent on each other.
