O M I Š
The small picturesque town of Omiš at the mouth of the river Cetina is today considered to be the tourist center of Dalmatia. Between two tourist centers Split and Makarska, Omiš has a unique location. Surrounded by imposing steep cliffs, the Cetina River and the crystal blue sea, Omiš offers a fantastic backdrop. This is a city that was under the government of the pirates for more than two centuries, and a city where the old Republic of Poljica developed, the first such in Europe.
Many cultural monuments from the long history of Omiš, many (fish) restaurants and ice cream parlors in the small old town, as well as various sports facilities, make your stay here unforgettable. River Cetina has cut a pitoresque mountain chain from the hinterland to the city with its km-long beautiful canyon on the way to the sea. The rare sandy beaches with small shady trees can be found in the suburb of Duce and make this part of the Adriatic coast exceptional and incomparable.
In addition to ecotourism in rural households, various sporting activities are an attractive part of the tourist offer. From rafting on the rapids of the Cetina, free climbing on the cliffs, sailing on the board, swimming marathon, water ball and beach volleyball, and recently a zipp line decorate the aerial image of Omiš
