DALMATIAN HINTERLAND – TOUR OF KLIS FORTRESS AND SINJ
Step into the world of tradition, undiscovered beauty and incredible tastes that is Dalmatian Hinterland. Just a short drive away from the coast lies one of Croatia’s most intriguing and lesser-known regions. More than two millennia of history have shaped the lives, culture and tradition of locals, who are proud to show them to the visitors.
First stop is Klis. Overlooking the city, Klis fortress gives you an incredible view of the entire Split area, Adriatic Sea and surrounding islands. For 2000 years it has kept its status as „the key to Dalmatia“, connecting the coastline to the hinterland. Once the seat of medieval Croatian kings, lately it has become famous for dragons, being one of the filming locations of the Game of Thrones series.
After you are satisfied with the pictures you have taken, we will visit the nearby Stella Croatica. Just minutes away, this family estate has been producing traditional Dalmatian hand-made delicacies for years. Take a tour of the production area, Mediterranean garden and oil museum, before tasting and buying the most authentic Dalmatian souvenirs.
Next up is Sinj, where you will discover Alka, an annual knightly tournament celebrating the strength and courage of brave men and women who defended their city from Ottoman onslaught in the 18th century. The specialized museum holds countless treasures from original weapons to modern trophies. Stroll around the city to find the nearby fort overlooking the center or step inside the church which is one of the most important pilgrimage sites in Croatia.
