vrieme prolazi, sklad ostaje . time passes, harmony remains . el tiempo pasa, la armonia se queda

Here, history was not silent. (John Paul II, Split, 4 October 1998)


A harmonious blend of late Antiquity refined architecture (3rd/4th cent.), at the time when the Emperor Diocletian

chose cabbage growing around his new luxury palace-villa, renouncing the throne in Nicomedia (modern İzmit, Turkey),

and sacral architecture from the Middle Ages (13th-16th cent.) The corpse of the anti-Christian emperor, Illyrian Dalmat

native of Split surroundings, was ejected from his mausoleum; his mausoleum dedicated to Jupiter became a Christian cathedral

dedicated to Saint Mary; his cabbage field has become a place from which it was gradually growing the city of Split.
