Diocletian’s Palace Ruins early in the morning | Split, Croatia

,
Diocletian’s Palace in Split, Croatia at night with stars overhead.

This photo was taken very (very) early in the morning, but 4 o’clock seemed to be the perfect time to capture the roman Diocletian’s palace in Split in the right light.

The building has a very special history. It was built more than 1700 years ago and is one of the oldest and most valuable remains of the Roman era. The palace made from marble and lime stone shines in a unique and unusual way during the light of the moon. This scene together with the clear night-sky and a million twinkling stars was the perfect picture waiting to be taken.

The palace complex with almost 30,000 square meters offers a lot more than meets the eye at first, as it consists not only from the impressive ruins but also of a huge basement system, which dates back to the 4th century. We were very lucky and got to explore the historic walls during a very special event – wine tasting! Every year in May you can taste the finest wines of Croatia in the basement of the palace. This is the perfect way to not only see the historical ruins but also feel the spirit of the antique times.

I was very impressed by the majestic Diocletian’s palace, which is why you can look forward to a lot more pictures of it in the future!

Sumfinity.com presents the hub for my works. I write about my impressions on my trips and during taking the photos. I try to provide you with insight into my artistic life, but the focus is always with the pictures. It fills me with pride when I see that my photos are sometimes viewed by approximately 150,000 people within 24 hours. I imagine that I can give all those people at least two seconds of pure pleasure. That’s 80 hours of happiness! In a world which is dominated by sad, upsetting and dismaying news, I’m so glad to be able to create a small counterpart.
