  • The imposing medieval fortress of Klis (Tvrđava Klis) in Croatia was built strategically as a garrison for the defense of the Dalmatian coast. It is an old Croatian fortification in good condition. It is located a few kilometers from split. It is not taken care of as many other historical sites that we visited and routes has stretches where safety is not just the greatest, prudence is never enough. There are few indications and few interiors. The scenery is worthy of attention and the place is very impressive, in complete harmony with the ancient context, even in the less taken care of. Well maintained, within the Fort, there is a church known as the mosque square, built by the Ottoman Empire on the ruins of a Catholic Church. Today among the youngest klis fortress is famous for the TV series followed worldwide "game of Thrones" (Game of Thrones), taken from literary saga of George r.r. Martin, as the historic site was used by the production as natural set outside.

Where to stay in Split

Split and its surrounding area boast an extensive system of private accommodations for rent, which range from simply furnished rooms to elegantly outfitted multi-room apartments. Many locals approach travelers at the main bus station with offers of available lodgings, but before you agree to anything, make sure you know the room's exact location in reference to the town center. For something more luxurious, check out the city's four- and five-star hotels, or consider an elegant villa a walk away from the major sights.
