On the 6th of April 1667 a catastrophic earthquake almost completely flattened Dubrovnik. Almost 5,000 people were killed in the quake and three quarters of the buildings inside the city walls were destroyed, it was a very black day in Dubrovnik’s history. And now that sad day can be experienced with the help of modern technology.
The digital studio Novena from Zagreb has created a 3D animation of the Dubrovnik earthquake. The project took three months to complete and the company consulted with the Dubrovnik Museums and the Zagreb Institute of Art History in order to make sure there video was accurate. The results are truly stunning.
