Religious Site · Hidden Gem · Architectural Building
A large, Protestant cathedral, Konstantinbasilika has been preserved from the era of Constantine the Great. Aula Palatina, or the Basilica of Constantine, was built by Emperor Constantine in 310 CE. Its large hall features an impressive high, unsupported ceiling that gives the place a sense of spaciousness and emptiness. It was restored in the 19th century and became a Protestant church but was damaged heavily during World War II. The historical decorations were not reconstructed; nevertheless, some exhibits and remnants of statues remain inside.
