Plan your Travels to Klis

Magnificent Klis Fortress, once home to several Croatian Kings is an easy trip from Split. The medieval fortress situated above the village of Klis, lies in the Dalmatia region of Croatia. If you arrive in Split, Sibenik, Trogir, or some nearby place, it’s worth visiting the Klis fortress, an amazing fortification building located in the village Klis. Klis fortress is one of the most prominent fortification buildings in Croatia, with an imposing history dating back to the period before the new era.

Due to its location, the fortress served as a major source of defense in Dalmatia, especially against Ottoman. The fortress is one of the most outstanding fortresses in Croatia and is not to be missed when in Split. Another interesting thing about this location is that some scenes from TV series Game of thrones were shot here. If you are a Game of Thrones fan this is a must.
