After Klis we descend to the ancient metropolis Salona (Colonia Martia Julia Salona), the capital of the Roman province of Dalmatia (1st century BC – 7th century AD), formed by the delta of the river Jadro in the protected sea bay below Kozjak mountain. The ruins of an Amphitheatre, a theatre, fortified walls, aqueducts, baths, temples, necropolis and basilicas, still bear witness to the size, prosperity and opulence of the ancient city (60 000 inhabitants). We must highlight the site Manastirine and Episcopal centre as the most important cemeterial or Early Christian complex in this part of Europe.
