Justiniana Prima are the remains of a Roman city located in Southern Serbia, in an isolated area, where roads are not very well, so you take care if drive in this region. In Justiniana Prima (or Caricin Grad), you can see perfectly the wall of the city and some of remains of the buildings. Really, it is a very interesting place if you love the history and you want to know about this period of the history. (See also Davolja Varos)

Iustiniana Prima is unbelievable place, great Byzantine city built by Justinian I (the Great) in 6th century, abandoned only 70 years later. It is located next to the Prekopčelica village, near Lebane city. Archeological Site is a bit hard to reach, but with average travel application shouldn't be a problem. Site is huge and only partially uncovered, with pieces of rich mosaics shown, and half of objects preserved and presented, while other half is in process. There is 11 known churches, bishop palace, school, baths, walls, square and other usual for that period and city planing. Amazing thing is that Iustiniana Prima is reagrded as unique example of early Christian and Byzantine city, abandoned and thus preserved in original intended urban and architectural matrix, not changed through centuries and life. Even though there are boards with information and historical facts, there should be more of material that explains and presents this important historical site. Nevertheless, strongly recommend this amazing piece of European and World Heritage, yet to be explore and discovered in details. This site is great for visitors interested in Architecture, Archeology, History, Roman Empire and Emperors, Byzantine culture, Christianity, Ruins, Religious Buildings, Heritage, and similar fields.
