Dating back to the 7th Century, the Klis Fortress is the emblem of the shifting reigns in Split. From being the seat of many Croatian rulers, to becoming the mediator between the Balkans and the Mediterranean to the rule of Ottomans, Venetians and Austrians, this fortress has been through troubled times. Located 13 kilometers northeast of the town Split in Croatia, this fortress has been crucial in defending the region from invasions outside. A visit to this fortress is a must see attraction to cherish the ancient ruined charm.

A great place for all the family. Wear sturdy shoes as there's a lot of climbing over fallen rocks and up steep slopes. The archery lesson was really fun and the teacher played cool (Game of Thrones) music on his guitar.
It is a nice ruin to visit. Also interesting to see the filming location of 'Mereen' from game of thrones. You pay a small entrance fee. There is free parking. Not a place recommended to visit with children since there are few barriers and little infrastructure.
This was a lovely walk along ruins of the fortress; no real shade so go armed with a sunhat or wear plenty of sunscreen. The walk delivers amazing views. (40kruna entrance fee.)
Beware: a tourist trap. Whoever came up with a ridiculous entry price of 60kn to see this pile of rubble must be having a laugh. There is nothing to see, the "breathtaking" views include highway, dust rising from a quarry and smog-infused landscape of Split blocks of flats. You can take the best picture on a terrace just before the entrance. Better take your time and money somewhere else. You've been warned.
Pretty cool fortress on the knife edge of a hill. No fences, but that's part of the charm. But the place is scattered with resently used building materials, and rubbish here and there.
