Danuvia Alacris is manned by volunteers dressed in Roman tunics and the campaign is part of an EU-funded project to raise awareness of the region’s Roman past.

Based on Roman shipwrecks found in the German city of Mainz, the Friedrich-Alexander University built a replica of a 4th-century Roman Danube ship in oak.

“Living Danube Limes” is an international project in which 10 Danube countries are collaborating to make the former Roman “Limes” – the border of the Roman Empire named after the Latin word for border – a new common cultural bond between the central and south-eastern Europe.
