If you want to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city, the small town of Klis is just a 10-minute drive from Split. It is located between the Mosor and Kozjak mountains and has always represented the border between the coastal part and the hinterland.
Its main attraction is the medieval fortress ( built in a 9 th century), which is a symbol of resistance against the Turks. The fortress offers a spectacular view of the city of Split and its surroundings. The fortress gained its greatest popularity when it was chosen as a filming location for the popular series Game of Thrones. Fans from all over the world come to see where the most famous shots from the fictional city of Meereen were filmed. This location is most often associated with trips to Split (Diocletian's Palace) and the small town of Žrnovnica with its wonderful ambience by the river.
