Digital studio Novena from Zagreb have published on their YouTube channel an interesting 3D animated reconstruction of the devastating earthquake that hit Dubrovnik in 1667…

The reconstruction shows how Dubrovnik looked just before the earthquake hit on 6 April 1667, the damage it left and then how it looks today. The earthquake was one of the two most devastating earthquakes to hit the area of modern Croatia. The entire city was almost destroyed and around 5,000 people were killed.

Animators spent three months working on the project and help from experts from Dubrovnik museum with the reconstruction. The video was part of the exhibition “Stjepan Gradić: Father of the Homeland” at Dubrovnik’s museum.
