– Kairos – God of a happy moment, is waiting for you in Trogir, known as the Town of the happy moment. It is a story about the Greek god Kairos who appears once in a lifetime, giving a person the opportunity to “catch him toa tuft” whilst his relief from the 4th century was discovered in the Trogir Palace. The original is kept in the Trogir Benedictine monastery of St Nicholas.  

– Klis Fortress represents one of the most prominent fortresses in Croatia. It gained fame during the Ottoman wars when, together with its Uskoks, it resisted the Ottoman attempts to conquer it, until 1537 when the fortress fell into Ottoman hands. Every year in July, Klis and its fortress revive the historical battles between the Uskoks and the Ottoman army.
