Klis – One day trip to Klis Fortress

Discover unique village of Klis and famous Klis Fortress

Klis is a small village located around a famous mountain fortress ("Kliška tvrđava") only 9 km from the town of Split (and just a few km more from our camp site). Throughout the history Klis played a significant role due to its position (at the altitude of 360m) which made it easy to guard the access to Split, Salona and surrounding areas.

Klis is a must see one day trip destination. If not for its rich history, famous fortress from Game of Thrones scenery, you should visit Klis for its breathtaking view of Split and islands of Brač, Hvar and Vis.


Klis Fortress and history

The Klis Fortress is one of the most important medieval fortresses in Dalmatian history. It was originally built as a small stronghold (by the ancient Illyrian tribe Dalmatae) that became a royal castle that was the seat of many Croatian kings. Finally it was developed as large fortress that was as a great source of defense during wars with the Ottomans. Klis Fortress guarded the frontier, and during two thousand year long history it was lost and re-conquered several times. Enough words, just click the photo and experience the fortress through a great 360 walking tour.

Klis Fortress and GAME OF THRONES

As you probably know, Klis Fortress was one of the chosen filming locations in Croatia for the popular Game of Thrones series. The Klis Fortress was the location chosen to represent the city of Meereen, one of "Khaleesi's" conquests.


The Vranjača Cave

When already in Klis, take a 10 min drive to Kotlenice (near Dugopolje) and visit The Vranjača Cave and its underground world of stalactites, stalagmites and underground sculptures which have been created by water for thousands of years.



Pack your camera and take a bus number 34 (see the timetable here) or rent a vehicle and discover Klis.
