Sremska Mitrovica


Metropolis of Pannonia and Illyricum on the edge of the Empire


The archaeological remains of the ancient town of Sirmium are situated under the present-day city of Sremska Mitrovica. The settlement existed before the Roman conquest of Pannonia when it was inhabited by the native communities of Amantinеs and Sirmiensis, after whom the latter town was named. Its history began at the end of the 1st century BC and lasted until the Avars’ conquest in 582.

Sirmium was the center of the Pannonia Secunda province , and after the reforms of Diocletian (after 293) it became one of the most important cities in the Roman Empire. Remains of the imperial palace complex, trades and crafts’ quarter, luxury urban villa and St Demetrius Basilica are present today within the inner historical center of the modern city.
