Total Croatia News

Klis is getting its place among the most important places on the tourist map of central Dalmatia. As the last year´s tourism results (significant increase in overnight stays and visits to the Klis fortress and various tourist facilities) have shown, there is much potential in tourism development with the right offer and good promotion, informs Dalmacija News.

Mindful of the importance of the information quality, a new Tourist Information Centre was designed to be installed at the entrance to the Klis fortress to inform each visitor about the rich history, cultural heritage and the unique offer of the Klis region through a kind of hologram.

Works on the Provveditore´s residence are almost done, The residence by its concent and meaning becomes a representative space by providing diversity and specificity to the tourism offer in the area of culture and will be a type of active and educational tourist attraction.

Klis is getting known by its rich offer of new types of tourist activities – like themed walking tours, climbing on attractive rocks and cycling. For all mountain-climbing lovers, Klis has one of the most attractive climbing walls in the region – Markezina greda, which is known by its beauty and attractiveness among climbers around the world.

Interesting are the communication connections from ancient times called Roman roads, that largely pass through Klis and are the best preserved at the archaeological locality Klapavice-Kurtovići.

A walking and hiking paradise can be experienced at the edge of the Klis area, in the village Nisko, where a beautiful, undiscovered gem of the traditional Croatian architecture and heritage is located – Dubočica and Rajčica.

Cycling presenting a healthy life-style is increasingly popular, which is recognized as an opportunity to attract potential guests, so that the Klis municipality organised 3 bicycle races, one of which was an official race of the Croatian Cycling Federation.

Few months ago, the first bike trail was marked – from the Klis fortress to the source of the Jadro river and back. Today, there are close to 200 km of marked trails through the municipality, connecting all villages of the area, making Klis a real hit of the cycling tourist offer.

“The efforts of the local government to attract potential visitors through various measures and projects, are supported by the contribution of the private sector, where potential service providers get involved in improving the tourist offer through various types of training and other activities”, said Slavica Caktaš, the Klis tourist board director.

Klis has been for centuries and remained to this day a geostrategic and traffic centre of the middle-dalmatian geographical area and all activities of the local authorities are focused to preserve the historic achievements, to refine and upgrade them to a higher and better level.
