Omiš



 

Situated on the mouth of the Cetina River, in the southern part of Dalmatia, Omiš today is a popular bathing resort; in the 11th and 12th centuries it was a notorious pirates’ nest.

One’s impression of the city is determined by the bastions of the Stargrad Fortress and of the Mirabell Fortress rising 331m above it.

The Cathedral, built in 1620, has a Renaissance style bell-tower which dates from the 16th century. The treasures of the early 18th century Franciscan Church deserve attention. From Omiš it is worth touring through the picturesque canyons of the Cetina River.

Suitable bathing areas, including some beaches of sand or small pebbles, can be found almost anywhere around Omiš and its neighbourhood.
