A multimedia exhibition at Warsaw’s National Stadium transports visitors back to the ancient Roman Empire, showing what it was like to live in Pompeii just before the city was obliterated in a volcanic explosion almost 2,000 years ago.

Entitled Pompeii. Living in the Shadow of a Volcano, the exhibition combines archeology and architecture with cutting-edge technology and computer graphics. This is the largest multimedia exhibition ever held in Poland, with 70 installations on 2,000 square meters in 24 rooms. Visitors are immersed in the ancient world and taken to Pompeii, near present-day Naples, at the time when Mount Vesuvius erupted and buried the city in 79 AD. Scenery reconstructed in 3D, LCD consoles, holograms and multi-sensory effects put you right in the center of events as you hear the roar of Mount Vesuvius and even feel the earth move under your feet. Visitors see fiery explosions, water flooding the streets and images of charred bodies. As the show reaches its climax, visitors see Mount Vesuvius erupt before their eyes.

The exhibition is open daily until Oct. 18, from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. Shows begin every two hours. Tickets priced zl.45 (normal) and zl.35 (concessions) are available at the National Stadium and www.stadionnarodow.org.pl
