Omiš Destination – Split and its surroundings

Omiš
This picturesque city is situated 20 km south from Split, and it will tell you stories from years ago about pirates!
During the 12th and 13th centuries, Omiš Pirates ruled the Adriatic Sea from Split to Dubrovnik and attacked merchant ships of rich cities like Venetia. In the 15th century, the city fell under the rule of Venetian Republic and became an important administrative and military center, protected by defensive walls. The traces of that time are still present in the contemporary architecture of the city.
