Via Flavia (Jurićev Kal-Arsia River)

January 7, 2024

The Via Flavia was an ancient Roman road that connected Trst/Trieste (ancient Tergeste) to Dalmatia. The road passes through Poreč/Parentium, Pula/Pola, Visače/Nesactium, crossing Arsia River, and continuing to Labin/Albona, Kastav/Castra where it joined Via Annia to Dalmatia. The road was built during the reign of emperor Vespasian (around 78/79 AD).
