In this episode: A tour of the basement of Diocletian's palace and the HBO show that made Croatia famous. Recorded 9/2/2022
This week in Split, Croatia, we went underground to discover the basement of Diocletian's palace. It’s one of the most well-preserved Roman-era basements outside of Italy, and it was made famous by the HBO series Game of Thrones.
