Iron Age Danube Route presented in Zagreb

The Iron Age Danube Route addresses one of the most fragile, though imposing and attractive prehistoric archaeological phenomena, the Iron Age landscapes.

The Archaeological Museum in Zagreb on Thursday presented the Iron Age Danube Route Association. The development of the route was the association’s first project. The museum’s director Sanjin Mihelic, who is also the chairman of the association, said that the association was a non-profit-making international group bringing together experts from Croatia, Hungary, Austria and Slovenia.

The association aims to make the cultural heritage of the route more accessible to the public. “Twenty partner institutions from Austria, Croatia, Hungary, Slovakia, and Slovenia that collaborated on the project put forward the idea of a joint approach to researching, managing, and protecting complex prehistoric landscapes. After the Iron-Age-Danube project ended, the partnership continued with the support of the Routes4U project of the Council of Europe.”
