  1. I love Klis! I’m so glad it got to be part of GoT and gain some more recognition.

  2. Ina, hvala lijepa for sharing. I’m hoping that Klis’ Game of Thrones stardom will help it get even more preservation attention. Such an impressive site with a rich history.

  3. Thanks for the tip.

    Greetings,

    • Oh Rabirius – that would just be superb! Can’t wait to see what your camera and techniques can do with Dioclecian palace and the stone paved narrow streets around old Split and the new gen stuff n cafes at the main “drag” ie Riva or Wharf :D

  4. Thanks. Awesome. Can’t wait to go back to croatia for a visits – long overdue.

  5. Te he nominado al premio Dardo es un reconocimiento a muy especial porque reconoce valores personales, éticos, culturales y literarios transmitidos a través de la escritura.
