As Game of Thrones fans we really wanted to visit Klis Fortress aka the city of Mereen. It's on a hill and you can overlook the whole Split area. You pay 20 kuna per person and beside the connection with the series, it's defenitely worth a visit. A lot of history there and a great view!

It's close to Split, reasonable entry price and it's well preserved. Fantastic views of Split and surrounds,. Wear walking shoes, take water etc though there is cafés in the village. Enjoy!

Most people will probably visit Klis fortress because it is one of the locations where Series 4 of Game of Thrones was filmed and as a fan of the series, it was great to see it. Despite that connection, it really is a beautiful fortress and well worth visiting. It is only half an hour bus ride from Split - get the number 22 bus from north of the Old Town, the bus isn't particularly reliable but it was a quick journey and the driver was helpful. The view from the fortress was amazing and just wandering around exploring was really enjoyable. I think me and my friends were lucky as there was no one else there and we had the whole fortress to ourselves which was really nice. I would imagine having lots of tourists there might make some of the levels in the fortress crowded. It could have done with a bit more information about it's history.

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!
