1. Thessaloniki (Greece) – Srimium (today Sremska Mitrovica, a city 55 km west of Belgrade, Serbia)
2. Heraclea Linkestis – Stobi – Pautalia (Kyustendil, Bulgaria) – Serdika (Sofia, Bulgaria).

According to historical data, the city of Stobi existed until the end of the 6th century.

The first excavations of the site began in the mid-19th century, and to this day it is continuously explored.

The archaeological site of Stobi is owned by the Republic of Macedonia and is a cultural monument of national interest of first category.
