Replica of Roman boat cruises the Danube



This week’s cruiser is a replica of a Roman-era boat that used to sail along the Danube between Germany and the Black Sea. It will make stops in Budapest, Hungary along its route.

The expedition was manned by volunteers dressed in Roman tunics and is funded by the European Union to increase awareness about the region’s Roman past.

Friedrich-Alexander University built a fourth-century Roman Danube vessel out of oak, based on remains of Roman shipwrecks found in Mainz.

“Living Danube Limes”, a transnational project, involves 10 Danube countries cooperating to make the former Roman “Limes”, the frontier line of Roman Empire. It takes its name from the Latin word “Border” and is a new cultural bond in Central-Eastern Europe.
