Town of OmisOmis is a small Central Dalmatian town between Split and Makarska. It is situated in the canyon of the very beautiful Cetina river and is surrounded with massive gorges. It was well-known in the past by the pirates of Omiš whose ships were for foreign invaders a centuries-long symbol of retaliation, courage and strength.

Today, Omiš is the place of various tourist facilities along its 35 kilometres long riviera consisting of the multitude of picturesque beaches and preserved fisherman's villages.

The strength of the Omiš pirates has been converted into the authentic song of the Omiš harmony-singing groups.

Na vrh straniceSplit

Town of SplitSplit is the economic and administrative center of Middle Dalmatia, with about 300,000 inhabitants.

It is also the jumping-off point for exploration of the coast and islands of the beautiful Croatian Adriatic. The site was first settled when, at the end of the third century AD, the Roman Emperor Diocletian built his palace here.

The importance of Diocletian's Palace far transcends local significance because of its level of preservation and the buildings of succeeding historical periods built within its walls, which today form the very heart of old Split.

Split's growth became particularly rapid in the 7th century, when the inhabitants of the destroyed Greek and Roman metropolis Salonae (present-day Solin) took refuge within its walls. The lovely ruins of Solin outside the city can still be explored today. In the Middle Ages, Split was an autonomous commune.

PeristilMany of Split's historical and cultural buildings can be found within the walls of Diocletian's Palace. In addition, numerous museums, the National Theatre, and old churches and other archeological sites in the Split region make it an important cultural attraction.

Split is a busy port, with an international airport and regular ferry services with the nearby islands, the north and south Adriatic, Italy and Greece. The merchant and passenger ships of the Split shipyards may be encountered in almost all the seas of the world. In addition, the city has large chemical works, metallurgy plants, and workshops for the production of solar cells.

The fertile fields around Split represent a good base for agriculture, while cultural monuments, superb landscapes and unparalleled seascapes make it a tourist's wonderland. Split is also a university seat and host to numerous scientific institutions.
