Romans along the Danube
Following in the footsteps of the Romans along the Danube
The Holy Roman Empire was considered unique in the world because of its size. The Romans could hardly be stopped in their conquests: Neither climatic nor geographical adversity could hold them back. They crossed the Alps, penetrated to the border of what is now Scotland, controlled the Mediterranean and constructed magnificent buildings that we can still admire today. And yet they were satisfied with leaving the Danube as the northern border of their empire, shaping today’s cultural landscape.
