Klis Fortress situated just outside of the City of Split is a medieval fortress that overlooks the village of Klis. The fortress was made from limestone and extended to what it is today during the Ottoman wars in Europe. The fortress was lost and regained many times during the war and was a key strategic point due to its closeness to the pass between the mountains. Klis Fortress has recently seen fame through hit television series Game of Thrones, it is used as the spectacular location for Daenerys overthrowing Meereen, the largest of the three slaver cities in the fantasy world. The producers used the fortress and the overlooking views in many of its episodes.
It is a short bus journey from Split, otherwise a car journey is recommended which will take around 20 minutes.
