Diocletian’s Palace, Split

This is a wonderful maquette of Diocletian’s Palace – you can really see the scale of Emperor’s vision here

Here are some photos from our first day in Split as we explored Diocletian’s Palace. It is the most amazing place, hard to believe it is still in everyday use after almost two thousand years. Inside is a cathedral and synagogue, as well as shops, apartments and restaurants.

The colour of the stone is so warm – this was the beginning of November and the weather was extremely mild. I cannot do justice to these photos, mostly taken by my son, by explaining the history. I was just happy to be there and imbibe the atmosphere. in parts it reminded me of Herculaneum and Pompeii, especially in the more quiet areas, when you could really imagine how life worked so long ago.

But it was not all benign, and I will write about that in another post. Meanwhile, enjoy these photos. Let me know if you have been here, too.
