The paper deals with the archaeological evidence of the waterways connecting the Baltic Sea and the Black Sea, as well as attracted information from written sources, which indirectly confirms the reality of their existence in the Late Roman Period and during the Great Migrations. These are three river roads: 1) Vistula — Western Bug, 2) Neman — Berezina — Dnieper, 3) Western Dvina — Dnieper. The author offers maps to illustrate spread of archaeological finds marking these waterways and considers historical factors behind formation and function of the river routes connecting the Pontus with the Baltic.

Keywords: Eastern Europe, Roman Time, Great Migration Period, water ways, Vistula, Western Bug, Neman, Berezina, Dnieper, Western Dvina.
