Klis Fortress

Reviewed By KeenPhotographer-11 - Brisbane, Australia

Very little to see and the very visible electric cables and flood lamps across fortress views only detract from the experience.
Our Tom Tom GPS was not happy with the www supplied street address but the road signage is good. Older guide books are also out of date with the current road and public transport access.
Only opens at 09:30 in winter.
40 Kn pp entry fee is not worth it.
No working toilets.
GOT fans may get a thrill but there are far more interesting old fortifications in Croatia.

Reviewed By RJCN8 - Dublin, Ireland

We were a family of four with teenagers and we all thoroughly enjoyed our trip. Our boatman was Vladimir, who we found out later was the owner of the tour company. We were the only ones on the speedboat so it was really like a private charter. We enjoyed snorkeling in the two secluded coves that Vladimir brought us to. He also gave us lots of interesting information throughout our trip. The water was very clear and teaming with lots of marine life. We also stopped off at Milna on the island of Brac for an hour so we had refreshments and a look around. Great trip would highly recommend it.

The birthplace of Zinfandel Wine, the wine, hospitality, and vineyards all very memorable. The owner was both host and doscent and extremely knowledable......knows most of the US Zinfandel vintnors.

Ruins of the Solin Amphitheatre

Reviewed By 908Laura - San Francisco, California

We stopped here after Sibenik on our way to Split. Very close by.
Interesting that this ruin is literally in someone's backyard. Definitely not a place for tourist groups. The family who lives there is nice enough to offer their bathroom for visitors to use.
There are still some structures standing, but the ruin is extensive. My kids enjoyed climbing up and down the rocks.
Definitely worth a stop.

We were taken to this rather out of the way vendor of local home made and locally produced products on out tour. I am sure the guides or their bosses get a small thank you in one way or another. It is a pleasant stop where one can taste locally produced food products, drinks sweets, jams, preserves, olive paste etc. It is clean and well presented, you can try before you buy all on display, so we did. We gave our young daughter a free hand saying she can get one thing for herself, after all it was her holiday as well, you would never believe she it, she chose the Olive paste she said she loved it, (like us she tried all bar the alcoholic drinks). On getting to our room in the hotel she gave me strict instructions to keep the olive paste in the safe of our room and no one was to eat it without her permission. The guide was astounded that she has never seen a child so young given a free hand to choose what she wanted and she chose olive paste over the beautiful sweets on offer, including almonds in sugar and candied orange peel. Well worth a stop we spent over 200 kuna, the products are not cheap but of high quality..

Ancient Salona

Ancient ruins of the city of Salona.

Reviewed By Ksenija M

Because it is still not exploited for tourism like other destinations. You can touch and feel how Ancient Romans lived 2000 years ago. Walk through ruins without boundaries and security yelling where not to go. Take a bus to Solin and explore the history.

Twierdza Klis

Reviewed By Jelena B - Split-Dalmatia County, Croatia

Since Duke Mislav of the Duchy of Croatia made Klis Fortress the seat of his throne in the middle of the 9th century, the fortress served as the seat of many Croatia's rulers. The reign of his successor, Duke Trpimir I, the founder of the Croatian royal House of Trpimirović, is significant for spreading Christianity in the Duchy of Croatia. He largely expanded the Klis Fortress, and in Rižinice, in the valley under the fortress, he built a church and the first Benedictine monastery in Croatia. During the reign of the first Croatian king, Tomislav, Klis and Biograd na Moru were his chief residences.
In March 1242 at Klis Fortress, Tatars who were a constituent segment of the Mongol army under the leadership of Kadan suffered a major defeat while in pursuit of the Hungarian army led by King Béla IV. After their defeat by Croatian forces, the Mongols retreated, and Béla IV rewarded many Croatian towns and nobles with "substantial riches". During the Late Middle Ages, the fortress was governed by Croatian nobility, amongst whom Paul I Šubić of Bribir was the most significant. During his reign, the House of Šubić controlled most of modern-day Croatia and Bosnia. Excluding the brief possession by the forces of Bosnian King, Tvrtko I, the fortress remained in Hungaro-Croatian hands for the next several hundred years, until the 16th century.
Klis Fortress is probably best known for its defense against the Ottoman invasion of Europe in the early 16th ...............

This is a vast green area for kids to play and run, sports etc. It is surrounded by river from three sides, ducks and swans can be seen. Only thing that is missing is a cafe shop near (was there but it closed).

Galerija Mestrovic

Galerija Meštrović houses the masterpieces of Ivan Meštrović carved in marble, bronze and wood. The house was built based on Meštrović's design (1931 - 1939), and was intended to be his family summer residence, working studio and exhibition space. It is surrounded by a Mediterranean garden which, with its bronze sculptures and the view of the sea and of central Dalmatian Islands makes a unique example of landscape architecture.

Reviewed By Toowoomba65plus - Toowoomba

We have been visiting all the Mestrovic sculptures that we can find in Croatia. We visited his atelier and his 'well of life' sculpture in Zagreb and this gallery in Split is equally amazing. You can also visit his private church with more of his sculptures in wood. His works are unique and worth seeing if at first you were not keen on sculpture.

Jadro River

Reviewed By gapdreamer - Lincoln, United Kingdom

We were recommended to try the Solinka trout at this restaurant by a local taxi driver. The room has no airs and graces, just friendly staff, eager to please, and what seemed like lots of local families out for a treat. Our trout was cooked to perfection and served with roasted vegetables - simple and enjoyable and very reasonably priced. We saw other diners eating pizzas cooked in the wood oven - they were enormous and looked delicious; if only we'd had time to go back another night - - - - . Definitely worth a try.
