New regional cultural tourism product on the way - The Illyricum Trail
The Danube Competence Centre (DCC), beneficiary of the RCC Tourism Development and Promotion Project’s grant scheme, funded by the European Union, will introduce the new Western Balkans branch of the Roman Emperors and Danube Wine Route’s called Illyricum Trail at the general annual meeting of the Route members.
Through their research and assessment the DCC has thus far identified eight Roman archaeological sites that will form the new Trail. The DCC will seek to certify the Trail as a Cultural Route of the Council of Europe once the participating sites fulfil the relevant European Cultural Routes criteria.
The initial sites that will be making up the Illyricum trail are located in in Albania – Butrin (Buthrotum) and Pojani (Apollonia); Bosnia and Herzegovina – Mogorjelo; Montenegro - Podgorica (Doclea) and Risan (Risinium); and Republic of North Macedonia – Bitola (Heraclea Lyncestis), Gradsko (Stobi) and Ohrid (Lynchnidos).
