Imperial Palace – The splendor of Ancient Rome in the heart of Srem

This archaeological site has been converted into a visitor center and provides a unique experience of history and archaeology. The Imperial Palace was the place of administration of the Roman Empire by Emperor Diocletian at the end of the 3rd century AD, and in the 4th century it had greater importance than the Imperial Palatine in Rome.
