Klis

Capture the fortress!

Absolutely Wonderful

Why You'll Love It

High above Split, Klis fortress, the main attraction in the village of Klis, inspires awe. Popularized by Game of Thrones as the set of Meereen, Klis has a fascinating history of its own. Protecting the coast since the Illyrians in 2nd century BCE, the Romans held it, before it became an important fortress for the Croats in warding off the Ottomans. Not even the Mongols could capture it!

Klis is also the site of my very favorite Split experience, a farm tour and feast in the shadow of the fortress.

The Details

How To Get There

Klis fortress is about 12 kilometers from the center of Split. You can take the 22 bus or an Uber or taxi. I took tours to visit Klis.

Solo Female Travel

While I ventured to Klis as part of tour groups, I would have liked a little more time to explore it just by myself. The fortress can draw crowds, so it’s a good idea to to keep your belongings secure.

Know Before You Go

While Game of Thrones has made Klist popular, calling Klis fortress Meereen is not going to endear you to the locals.
