Omiš

Omiš

Omiš is situated at the mouth of the River Cetina. The origin of the town's name comes from the Slavic word holm, which means hill, mountain because the village was most probably, situated further north, in a hamlet called Baučići. This rich pirate history is owed to the fortress of Fortica, which had the purpose of defending the town against its enemies but also as a refuge. The Mirabela Peovica fortress represents the medieval part of the town which was once surrounded by the city walls and fortifications. Today Omiš is a favourite destination for those looking for adventure in the Cetina Canyon, trying rafting, hiking or speleology.
