For lovers of history and archeology, there is a wealth of medieval and Roman history to be found in the immediate surrounds of Split.
What Pompeii is to modern-day Naples, Salona is to Split. Just six kilometers from Split lie the remains of a famous Roman city Salona, once the capital of the province and one of the largest cities in the Roman Empire.
From ancient Salona, you will proceed to Klis, which is home to an imposing medieval fortress, perched high on a hilltop. This fortress became castle to many Croatian kings and is also very famous as one of the filming locations of the Game of Thrones series.
