Split Shore Excursion: Fortress of Klis and Vranjaca Cave
Maximise your day in Split with a wonderful exploration of the wider region! Delve into some history at the Klis Fortress and explore some natural wonder at the beautiful Vranjaca Cave.

A fabulous tour choice for first time visitors to the port of Split! Venture in to the wider region and explore more than the vicinity of the ship.

Embark on a scenic drive through Split, towards the Klis Fortress; a medieval fortification that sits in a prime position high above a village. Learn about the region from your guide, admire outstanding views and make the most of endless photo opportunities.

The Klis Fortress has a deep and fascinating history that spans more than two millenniums. It tells stories of an ancient Illyrian tribe, was the seat of Croatian kings and participated in Ottoman wars throughout Europe. The Klis Fortress has guarded the nearby borders, has been conquered several times throughout its long history and is regarded as a major source of defense in Dalmatia. Go inside and explore the well preserved ramparts and features and have a camera to hand for plenty of unusual photographic material.

Drive on to Vranjaca Cave; noted for being the most beautiful cave in Central Dalmatia. Discovered in 1903 and dating back millions of years, this breath-taking cave is formed mainly from mineral limestone. It measures approximately 300 meters in length and 65 meters deep and was once inhabited by Neolithic man. Earthenware objects and bone fragments have been discovered here, as well as a new species of cave spider, and stalactites and stalagmites have grown into unusual shapes that cast eerie shadows. Stand in awe of this natural wonder and learn about the minerals that are present in the formations.

This fantastic tour is a brilliant opportunity to explore as much as possible in a single day’s call to the historic city of Split!
