SOLIN AND KLIS
Before Split there was the palace of Romane emperor Diocletian. And before Diocletian there was Salona. One of the most important cities of the Romane empire, located at the crossroads of  the sea and the land routes of the ancient Mediterranean.Barbarian hords destroyed the town ages ago, but Salona's ruins still hold the spirits of Roman and Early Christian times. Take a stroll down histroy lane as you walk by the old Basilica Urbana, it's baptistery, the Theather, the Forum and  the old Christian cemetery, the Manastirine. Use your imagination as standing in the middle of the amphitheatre – venue bloody gladiator fights all those centuries ago. Afterwards we will continue our trip and go to 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 to be 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 a symbol of the resistance of the united Dalmatians in their fight against the Ottomans. Today 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.
