Ever dreamt of spending the winter in a Roman Emperor’s oceanfront palace, enjoying both nature, history and the seaside? While some keep on dreaming, full-time nomad Jocelyn Garwood turns her dreams into reality and shows us the beauty of Croatia’s seaside stunner; Split.
This millennia old city, once an Adriatic pearl in the Roman Empire, is now a World Heritage treasure that you surprisingly can savour for yourself when visiting at just the right time.
Travel journalist Anita Palada travels back in history, to the cradle of the Croatian region of Dalmatia. The imposing fortress of Klis is tied to the origins of Dalmatia and has served as stronghold for kings and last defence against Ottoman forces that lay siege of Klis for decades.
It commands the mountainous hinterland of seafront Split and has a history and heritage that far supersedes its imaginary role as Meereen in Game of Thrones. The true facts and faces of Klis are way more interesting than fiction.
