DIOCLETIAN’S PALACE AS IT ONCE WAS: STUNNING 3D ANIMATION

Have you ever visited the home of a Roman Emperor?

The main attraction on a visit to Split is without doubt Diocletian’s Palace in the centre of the city on its fabled waterfront. A UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1979, the palace takes its name from Emperor Diocletian, who traded the bright lights of Rome for what is today the city of Split for his retirement home. 

Today, Diocletian’s Palace is a very lively tourism and culture hot spot, with many bars and restaurants offering a vibrant nightlife, while its markets, boutique shops and cafes make it a joy to experience once you have enjoyed the historical sights. 

But how did Diocletian’s Palace look in the past, at the height of its majesty?

A stunning 3D animation reconstruction by Stipan Ujdur gives us a few clues. Amazing work on the palace built for a Roman Emperor who lived until 325 AD. So the next time you are in the palace, close your eyes and remember its former greatness at the height of Diocletian’s power – it must have been quite an experience.
