LIVING the common heritage on the DANUBE LIMES

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

Living Danube Limes is an EU funded Interreg “Danube Transnational Programme” project that focuses on connecting, enlivening, researching, preserving and highlighting the Roman Danube Limes as transnational cultural heritage of enormous significance, in order to create a sound foundation for a future European Cultural Route. 

Beside the research, preservation, and other activiteis, the project’s main attraction is a reconstructed late Roman Danube lusoria ship – named Danuvina Alacris. The ship and its  international living-history crew animates the life of the Roman military on the natural river Frontier of the Roman Empire. The ship cruises down from the Balck Forest (Germany) to the Black Sea (Romania) in its total lenghts of 2500 kms, highlighting the connecting character of the Roman Danube Limes. KÖME’s main role is to coordinate the Hunagrian section of the cruise, organise related cultural events, strengthen the connection between heritage experts, arouse people’s interest in cultural heritage, moreover to creat the foundation of a future cultura route.
