Klis

The hill of Klis is a connection between the Mount Mosor to the east and Kozjak to the west. Over history it has been a target for many nations, from the Illyrians and the Venetians to the Ottomans who considered it the port of Dalmatia, an open path towards old Salona and Split.

At the peak of this hill a village was built which the Ottomans later fortified. The well known Klis fortress is not only a symbol of the village but also of the resistance of united Dalmatians in their fight against the Ottomans. Today too Klis represents a link between the sea and Zagora as both the old and the new roads leading towards the Croatian hinterland pass through here.

The Fortress of Klis is situated some 15 km away form Split.
