Split Hinterland tour takes you to a few spectacular places on the slopes of Kozjak and Mosor mountains.
Our first stop is Salona, the capital of the Roman province of Dalmatia, formed on the delta of the river Jadro. The first inhabitants were the Illyrian tribe Delmati in the 3rd century BC. During the reign of the Roman Empire, Salona became the vastest Roman city on the east coast of the Adriatic and had a population of 60,000. In the 7th century, the town was attacked by Avars and then Slavs. Residents fled to a shelter on neighboring islands, leaving Salona to decay.
After this archeological site, a Klis Fortress tour is on the itinerary. Klis Fortress, located between mountains Mosor and Kozjak, has played an important role in history since the 2nd century BC, being the strategic point between the coast and the hinterland of Dalmatia. Croatian dukes and kings hold it as part of their kingdom but the most famous role fortress had in the wars with the Ottoman empire and its group of Klis ambushers.
After the Klis Fortress tour, we will visit ethno-agro park Stella Croatica. Here you will see the production of local plant products and pastries. Also, you will be able to taste some. The guide of Stella Croatica will explain everything about olive history and its cultivation during the visit to the Olive Museum which is part of the whole park.
The last stop is Vranjača cave, a breathtaking geomorphological monument. Vranjača cave is the underground world of stalactites and stalagmites. This stunning part of the planet has been shaped by water deep in the ground for a thousand years, and one of the great examples worth visiting is found close to Split.
