NEW SUMMER STAGE COMING TO KLIS FORTRESS
It is known to some as the Gateway to Dalmatia, and to hundreds of millions of others as Meereen, from the hit HBO show, Game of Thrones.
Klis Fortress has been dominating the view to Split from inland Dalmatia for centuries, and its recent role as a tourist attraction in recent years has been dramatic.
Inspired by Game of Thrones tourism, Klis has become an unlikely hit destination, and the local Klis authorities have responded in kind, attracting EU funds to upgrade the facilities on offer at the fortress.
The latest addition will be a summer stage at the fortress – talk about culture with a view!
“We hope that in the summer, if epidemiological conditions allow, we will be able to watch and listen to the performers of numerous cultural and entertainment events on the new stage, which bring together both domestic and foreign tourists, as well as the locals of Klis. Last year, as many as 100,000 visitors who enjoyed the beauties of this world-famous medieval fortress were exceeded and we are proud to valorize its tourist potential through the sustainable and responsible use of cultural heritage,” said Jakov Vetma, Mayor of Klis.
