Welcome to Omiš Google Map

Only 26 km southeast of Split , Omis (pronounced Omish) is an easy day trip from Split and makes a good alternative place to stay in the Split region. Located at the mouth of the Cetina river and right on the coast , Omis is a popular rafting destination and there are beaches stretching from Dugi Rat in the west to Ravnice in the east. A 700 m wide shallow stretches west of Omis , created by the drifts of the Cetina river. There are also a number of coves between Ravnice and Vrulja with pebble beaches.

Omis is a small , old fortified town , built originally at the foot of the rugged and steep cliffs of the western spur of the Omiska Dinara mountain. Modern Omis has spilled out of the old walls , spreading to a shallow promontory which the Cetina river has formed on the left bank of its confluence. The most distinctive feature of Omis are the enormous sheets of rock that loom over the town and river. At one time the rocks helped seclude the pirates that made Omis one of their chief strongholds.

Sights to see in Omis include a ruined Venetian fortress on the hill over the town and a 17th century parish church in the town centre.

The history of Omis is governed by the defensive nature of its topography. The Romans had a settlement here called Oneum but it was first mentioned as a fortified town at the end of the 11th century. It became a pirates' haven in the 12th and 13th centuries with the pirate ships extending their reach from the coast to the islands and beyond. The wealth of the town demanded more walls which were erected toward the end of the 12th century. There was a brief period under Venetian rule in the 13th century before Omis fell into the hands of the Subic princes of Bribir. Bosnian rulers and feudal lords took charge for part of the 15th century before Venice took control and held it until 1787.
