What to see & do

Imperial Palace Complex - This offers a view of a complex which houses the ruins, mosaics, and other artefacts found at Sirmium’s royal palace which was highly favoured by Constantine the Great. The structure also reportedly contains the remains of a Roman imperial palace which served as a home to various Roman emperors like Constantine. Since its discovery in the 1950s, the Imperial Palace has been excavated for the past years with people finding valuable items inside it like the remnants of the rooms of the emperors. It also houses several mosaics, frescos, and ornaments which have been preserved overtime. The palace now serves as one of the most important Roman sites in Serbia.

Sopocani Monastery - Visitors will be captured by the frescos inside this church which are perfect examples of medieval art. The most renowned in Serbia is the Assumption of the Virgin Mary fresco. From the outside, the church looks like a basilica with three naves but it only contains a single nave structure. It has been included as one of UNESCO’s World Heritage protected monuments. There has been noticeable damage in the building over the years but people still love looking at its ensemble.

Old Village Museum - This can be found on the village of Sirogojno which is located on Mt. Zlatibor. It is an open air museum also called “ethno-village” covering about five hectares of land and is filled with authentic materials during the 19th century life of the Zlatibor region. It has a display of wooden buildings like an inn, a dairy, and a bakery which all preserved their authentic form. In 1983, the village was declared a Monument of Culture of Exceptional Importance.
