And in the future, as the Mayor of Požarevac, Mr. Bane Spasojević, at the same time also the President of the Organization Board of the Ljubičevo Equestrian Games 2016, told the journalists, "We attempt to let the Ljubičevo Equestrian Games and Archaeological Park Viminatium be the two bases developing tourism in Požarevac". Since the Archaeological Park Viminatium was already the host of the globally followed exhibition of the National Museum of Serbia under the title Constantine the Great and the Milan Edict, and the Ljubičevo Stud Farm started in 2016 returning to the best European days from its beginning, Požarevac finds itself the relevant place on the global tourism route.
