Tourist destination info Omis

Omis is a town in the heart of Dalmatia, located on the delta of the river Cetina, only 21km southeast of the largest Dalmatian town – Split. Omis is first mentioned in the 10th century. The medieval name of the town was Olmissium. The location of the town, as well as their light and fast boats enabled the locals to become infamous pirates. In the times of the greatest sieges, dukes Kacic were at the front of the Omis pirates. For two centuries they were the leaders of the attacks on the pope galleys and merchant ships of the powerful Venice, Dubrovnik, Split and similar. This small location offers the possibility of visiting numerous cultural and historical sites which made this town famous. Visit the Mirabela fort (dates back to the 13th century, its role was the reconnaissance), Fortica fort (located at the top of the Omis part of the Dinara mountain, its role was to defend from enemies), parish church of St. Mihovil (built at the beginning of the 18th century, in gothic, renaissance and early baroque style), Franciscan convent, St. Peter church, Holy Ghost church, St. Mary church, St. Luka church, Illyrian seminary (one-floor building, a former Illyrian seminary founded by the archbishop of Split, Pacifik Bizza in 1750), town museum, old cemetery of Omis, medieval town core, pole of shame and the old town lodge.

Sports and recreation enthusiasts can enjoy free climbing, rafting on Cetina, beach volleyball, running, windsurfing, cycling, diving and numerous other activities. All types of beaches are found in Omis. Because of the Cetina delta, there are sandy beaches in the center of the town, which are suitable for families with children because of the shallow water. The most famous beaches within the town are “Velika plaza”, “Slavinj” and “Brzet”. If you are willing to savor the specialties and delicacies of the town of Omis and get acquainted with the Dalmatian cuisine, which was declared the healthiest cuisine because of the Mediterranean herbs, visit some of the numerous restaurants and taverns in Omis. We recommend the restaurants “Sagita”, “Mate”, “Kastel”, as well as the taverns “Ulikva”, “U našeg Marina” and “Caca”.

Be sure to visit:

Split is one of the best known and most visited tourist destinations on the Adriatic and the second largest city in the country.  It is an eternally young city which lives with a slow pace that is very easy to get accustomed to. This city is rich in historical monuments of which we recommend the following: Diocletian’s palace (the heart of the city), the Iron Gate, the statue of bishop Gregory of Nin, the cathedral of St. Duje, church of St. Francis, cathedral of St. Peter, the main court, city basement, St. Anne’s monastery and many others.

Makarska is one of the most famous tourist destinations on the Croatian coast. The city is full of tourist activities and everyone is sure to find something to their liking. Makarska has several historical monuments such as the Franciscan monestary (which includes a Pinacotheca, a library, a Malacological museum, and the “Planina i More” institute) the church of St. Mark, church of St. Peter, city museum and the church of St. Philip. Those who prefer sports and recreation can take part in cycling, sailing, jet-ski riding, basketball, hunting, soccer, volleyball, paragliding, hiking, rafting, fishing and scuba diving.

Hvar is an ancient city with a rich history and the greatest number of sunny days. It faces the sunny South side of the world on the island of the same name. Its name comes from the Greek name for Hvar, “Pharos.” In the city you can view various historical monuments of which we recommend the Fortica fortress, the Hvar cathedral, city theatre and the Franciscan monastery. This city is the center of the island’s tourism and it is one of the most preferred and most visited destinations on the entire Adriatic. Its most attractive characteristics are a warm, sunny climate, various accommodation offerings, sports and recreation, natural beauty, good culinary offer and an active night life.

    The town was lovely, a bit of tourist stuff but still with bags of character and charm. Lots of great restaurants/ shops etc. It felt safe to walk around. We had a great boat trip over to the island and there was lots of tourist info re rafting and trips etc. The scenery is stunning, both in terms of mountains, greenery and blue sea, and we enjoyed rafting on the Cetina Also things were generally cheaper than we thought. The beach was not overcrowded and it was easy and relatively cheap to get sunbeds and umbrellas. There were good showers on the beach
    The main thing which was a massive let down for our kids was the fact that the beach had been described ( on all the websites I looked at) as sandy, when in fact it was mainly pebbly/shingly with a tiny strip of sand just before you get to the sea. IF we had known in advance that it was like this it would have helped. There could have been more watersports on the actual beach, other than a pedalo, such as paragliding, banana boat jet ski, speed boat etc. we did enjoy the rafting and the skipper was ace but it was a little tame with minimal white water.
