Palace of Emperor Galerius


Imperial palace was built in the fourth century for Roman Emperor Gaius Valerius Maximianus Galerius and it's considered as the most preserved imperial palace in Europe. Today Felix Romuliana is on UNESCOS's World Heritage List.
On our way to Gamzigrad we are passing mysterious mountain Rtanj, which is believed to reflect an underlying pyramid.
Felix Romuliana (Happy Romula) is the name which Roman Emperor Galerius gave to the palace after his mother, Romula. Turbulent history of the palace witnesses about periods of ultimate splendour, but also dreadful devastations.
From Gamzigrad we continue to Bor - a mining town and one of the biggest copper mines in Europe, in order to visit deserted open pit mine which is the biggest artificially made dent in Europe. For observing this sight from Mars we will use terrace especially made for visitors.
After open pit mine we make a lunch break, in nearby spring Brestovačka banja in a cosy and peaceful place.
