Beautiful fortress with amazing views and incredible history. I love watching Game of Thrones new series and bragging about being at the location where it was filmed.

We went to visit Fortress of Klis as we heard how important it was in the history of Dalmatia and it was worth of visiting....the view was breathtaking, you could see Split Brac Hvar Vis even Italy if the skyes were clear!
We had an exellent guide (sretan.plestina@gmail.com) from Klis who explained why this area was so significant to Romans and Venetians , why Klis fortress was named ''the Key of Dalmatia'', how it was built, when it was taken by Ottomans, he even showed where were Game of Thrones filmed(Khallesies court)!
Fortress Is just 20 minutes driving from Split and definitly should be part of yours Split area schedule, once you wisit you'll fell in love with this beauty!
There was even a hall with original medievale weapons!
Don't miss this one!

A great place to visit from Split. The fort was the seat of many Croatian rulers from the 9th century and was built to control an important mountain pass between the Dalmatian coast and inland Croatia. It withstood many onslaughts, but was eventually taken by Ottoman invaders in 1537, who in turn were supplanted by the Venetians a century later.

The fort sits on a high rocky ledge with panoramic views in all directions, and is well worth exploring as it is only a short detour from the main Split to Sinj road.

On the way from Split to Plitvice Lakes our tour guide suggested a short stop to see the Fortress at Klis. The historical significance and scenic setting of this fortification made it an appealing break. Then the bonus: the site was being prepared for filming season 4 of Game of Thrones! Intriguing props were already in place, including wooden scaffoldings and such complete with vaguely runic decorations. The Fortress itself is atmospheric, as would be expected for a site apparently dating back to at least the 10th century. Views to the surrounding countryside and the Adriatic were breathtaking on this bright, early fall day. The complimentary brochure provides historical background and a numbered schematic to help you interpret the sections as you walk through the site.
