In the Jubilee year when the Christian world celebrated 17 centuries since the signing of the Edict of Tolerance – the Edict of Milan, through the proclamation of which, in 313 in Milan, Emperor Constantine the Great allowed religious equality and stopped the persecution of Christians, the Archaeological Park Viminacium, was actively involved in a program to mark this important anniversary with two events, actually important national exhibition and famous Verdi’s opera Aida. Those events attracted thousands of visitors and again marked the Archaeological Park Viminacium as one of the most important and most successful promoters of cultural and historical heritage in Serbia. In future, we hope that tourism in this area, based on rich cultural and historical heritage will be more developed, using Viminacium as a leader and a model.
