Diocletian's Palace in Split

Diocletian was a Roman Emperor from the 20th November 284 to the 11th May 305. He declared himself a god in his reign but the Christian part of the empire did not support that idea.

The Diocletian's Palace is an ancient palace built for the Diocletian emperor at the turn of the fourth century,...
