Day 2: Game of thrones tour
Game of Thrones – Meeting point in front of the Palace of Dicoletian in Split. The tour takes us over the famous beaches of Split and then we continue eastward. The last beach in Split – Duilovo – takes us towards Stobreč, an ancient Roman settlement of Epetion, situated at the very coast. From this picturesque fishing village we follow the Žrnovnica river until we get to Žrnovnica settlement, named deftly after a Croatian word for a mill (žrvanj) and which boasted a hunting house for the Roman emperor Diocletian. We continue along Korešnica, Kučine, Mravinci – all suburbs of Split – until we get to the source of the Jadro. We follow the road which takes us up to Klis Kosa, and along the once-used railway track which operated from 1903-1962. Elder people still remember the ever-so-popular train Rera, which connected Split and Sinj. Along the track takes is Klis – a Medieval fortress where some scenes from The Game of Thrones were filmed. After a break in the shade of the walls, which offer a breathtaking view over Split, we go downhill, passing the settlements of Rupotine and Ninčevići, to get to the ancient Salona – a settlement destroyed in the 4th ct AD. The tour ends with sightseeing of the remnants of Salona, its amphitheatre and other sites on the location. This route is 20 to 35 km long, depending on the fitness of the cyclists.
