Omis, Croatia

Omis

Omis is a small bathing station situated half-way between two tourist centers such as Split and Makarska.

The city spreads at the mouth of the Cetina river that ends its journey started 105 kms in the north from its source in the village of Cetina.

The place is situated between two mountain's massifs : Poljicka planina, a foothill of Mosor and Omiska Dinara.

ONCE, A PIRATES NEST

The old city, on the foothill of these stoned walls once was a center of Croats' pirates who stood up to the powerful Venetians for more than two centuries.

Except for the enormous blocks of rocks, the town is dominated by two medieval fortresses : Mirabela or Peovica and Fortica or Starigrad. They are the witnesses of Omis's pirates' past and as having the excellent position and view they allowed them to watch over the ships to attack.

NOWADAYS, A PEACEFUL TOWN

On the narrow and steep streets of that city with its old houses all built by the same white stone, one can find everything to spend agreeable and animated vacations.
