Ripa Pannonica in Hungary is part of the Tentative list of Hungary in order to qualify for inclusion in the World Heritage List. It is a proposed extension of Danube Limes WHS.

At the Ripa Pannonica in Hungary, the Danube was used as natural border of the Roman Empire in its province of Pannonia. Watchtowers, forts and civil settlements were placed along that border. A specific use of watchtowers - in a line of four – was developed here to guard the river and its islands.
