    The pagan religion and mythology of the Slavs has been systematically researched for over two hundred years.

    Viminacium was once the seat of the Roman province of Upper Moesia and one of the most significant Roman cities and military camps in the period between the 1st and the 6th centuries. The cult of the Danubian Horseman is a riddle to researchers and can still only be considered a mystical cult, Viminacium Director Miomir Korac has told Tanjug.

Scholarly work on these processes has shown the ways, in which the landscapes through which people, things and ideas move, are laden with stories about past lives, present experiences and future becoming. People not only use landscapes, they also talk about and fashion them through narratives in such a
