5th of August 1995...First day of free Knin after the Croatian War of Independence.
6th of August 1995--the day when president Tudman kissed the Croatian flag on the fortress
With geographical position Fortress of Knin was the most powerful fort in all Dalmatia. It was the capital city of Croatian kings, governors, bishops.. On the entrance in fortress there is door of stone built in baroque style. It was built betweeen the middle of the tenth and the thirteenth century (and according to some other historical sources fortress was built after the second half of the 9th century but it's mentioned after the 10th century).
It seems to be the way that if the train ( now sadly not running ) is a bit crowded , to gather in the corridor with a crate of Karlovachko , a bottle of Slivonovice and to get pissed and chain smoke the journey away.
If you want to challenge yourself and get some of the most amazing views south of Ireland, then the hills and mountains around Knin are a must.
From Mount Dinara to the Krkic Waterfalls, there are so many excellent places to explore and climb.
A taste of real Croatia.
Equipment: Depending on weather, but good footwear a must!
