About Klis fortress

Klis Fortress has a rich history dating back to the times of the Roman Empire. Initially belonging to an ancient Illyrian tribe, it later fell into the hands of the Romans. Its strategic location near a mountain pass led to its conquest by various rulers, including the Ottoman Empire and the Venetians. This historical blend gave the fortress its unique shape and inspired the portrayal of Meereen in Game of Thrones.
