Amber Route: The Roman scholar Pliny the Elder (23/24-79 A.C.) reports that amber was transported from the Baltic sea to Aquileia via this route, which had been of considerable importance ever since prehistoric times. In Austria, the Amber route follows the March/Morava river, crosses the Danube near Carnuntum (Lower Austria) and leads to the Adriatic sea via Sopron (Hungary) and Ljubljana (Slovenia). South of the Danube, the Romans already used the route as an important transport road in the early 1st century A.C.
