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

Split


Split 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.
