The heritage of Emona is associated with the heritage of the Danube provinces of the former Roman Empire. Archaeological Park Emona is actively involved in the international project ISTER, which is part of the DANUBE REGION.

The project’s purpose is to rediscover and revive the ancient network of roads and settlements established and developed by the Romans along the Danube river, and to use this network as the basis for eco-cultural routes. One of these routes also includes Emona, a colony next to the Ljubljanica river, which connects with the faraway Danube through the Sava river. It includes studying, documenting and finally the establishment of an atlas and a tourist promotion of the road networks in the Danubian provinces of the former Roman Empire.
