From the 13th century, the Poljica Principality or Republic was extended over the area of today’s Poljica, a group of picturesque villages at the foot of Mosor, from Žrnovnica to Blato na Cetini and Omiš. What is unique about this is that the Poljica Republic was ruled by the people. It was an autonomous peasant community under different administrations, from Croatian-Hungarian kings through to the Venetian and Ottoman Empires then to the French and the Austrians, that always had a recognised and special structure. The Autonomous Poljica Principality was overthrown in 1807 by the French (Napoleon’s Marshal Marmont) whilst today it is an extremely picturesque area of much larger and smaller historical churches, museums and legends.
