After breakfast meeting with the local guide and Split sightseeing. First, you’ll take a walking tour of the 1700-year-old Diocletian’s Palace in the heart of Split’s old town. You’ll wander the streets that became Meereen, the palace basements and Daenarys’ throne room. Next, departure to the mountain village of Klis, about 20 minutes outside Split. In this tiny village lies Klis Fortress, which stands tall on the end of a rocky cliff offering the absolute best view of Split, the Adriatic Sea and neighboring islands. Your guide will take you on a walking tour of the fortress, during which he’ll tell you about the Game of Thrones scenes that were filmed here as well as some of the local Croatian history. After Split sightseeing departure to Šibenik, a historic town in Croatia, located in central Dalmatia where the river Krka flows into the Adriatic Sea. The town was founded in the 10th century. It consists of a labyrinth of narrow streets and small squares climbing from the level of the Cathedral of St. James to the fortress at the summit of the old town. On your way to Šibenik stop in Kaštela. Located between Split and Trogir, the “town” of Kaštela is actually composed of seven coastal villages built around 15th century castles. At the time, upper-crust families in Split felt greatly threatened by the march of the Ottoman Turks into Europe. One by one, they filed into Kaštela bay and built fortified mansions for themselves. Because of it, Kaštela serve perfectly as a set for the mystery region of Doreen the mighty. After Kaštela we welcome you to the New Throne, known as the City of Šibenik, whose fortified walls and ancient architecture were seen in the fifth season of the Game of Thrones. Šibenik is known as The King’s City, for it was the court of Croatian King Krešimir the 4th in the 11th century, and now you’ll witness it fusing with the world of the Game of Thrones. A perpetual stronghold for many rulers, Šibenik is protected by four fortresses on each of its side: the Fortress of St. Nicholas, St. Michael, St. John and the Šubičevac Fortress. In series, Šibenik and its fortresses represented Braavos, the greatest and most powerful of the Free Cities. After Šibenik continue to Krka National Park, the backdrop to numerous nature scenes in the show’s fourth season. It is a breathtaking place, and its cascading waterfalls will leave you mesmerized and refreshed, as you swoon into the greens of its flora and the blues of its crystal clear water. We’ll finish the day with a dinner in a typical Dalmatian village – Etnoland Dalmati where you’ll enjoy both the ambient as well as a delicious three-course homemade meal. After dinner return back to Split. Overnight in Split.

Hell’s Islands, or ‘Paklenjaci’ is a group of small picturesque islands just outside of Hvar, and a destination easily reachable by speed boat. Many have found peace and seclusion on Hell’s Islands, as they are home to charming taverns and small family hotels. Time moves slowly here. Second stop in our nautical journey is the Island of Vis – raw, isolated from the mainland, charismatic and beautiful. Your tour of Vis wouldn’t be complete without visiting a tiny nearby island called Biševo. With an official population of fifteen souls, the limestone Island of Biševo is the home of the Blue Cave, one of the most magical places in the Mediterranean. Located in the Balun Bay, the Blue Cave was initially described and painted by Baron Eugen von Ransonet, and until the 18th century, was accessible only by diving. Illuminated by both the Sun and the Moon, the inside of the cave glows with an incredible aquamarine light and it will leave you breathless. Return to Split in the late afternoon.
