4th Annual Roman Days

4th Annual Roman Days

to
Vinkovci

The theme of this year's Roman Days: „In hoc signo vinces“ – „In this sign you will conquer“ is related to the anniversary of the great battle between Constantine and Licinius, which took place in year 316 in the vicinity of the modern-day Vinkovci, once known as Colonia Aurelia Cibalae, and which shall be featured in the products at the Roman Products Fair, workshops and plays.

This year's novelty is the Festival of Craft Beer - Sabaiarius, at which you'll be able to taste fine beers of Croatian as well as foreign brewers, on Friday, 20th May. The events shall commence with the participation of our youngest ones: about three hundred children from kindergartens, who will be playing games which the Roman children once used to play. The programme shall continue in the competitive spirit at the Olympiad of Knowledge, in which the 5th grade elementary school pupils are to participate. At 18:00 the great procession of all participants shall commence. After saluting the emperors, the guest gladiators of the Sports Association "Gaz" from Trilj, as well as a group of gladiators from Vinkovci, shall display their skills. Special attraction will be the so-called antique football, which shall take place at our "arena".
