Omis, Croatia

08 Jul

Charming ex-pirates cove

Omis used to be a stronghold of the pirates. Located right the mouth of Cetina River that runs into the sea through a tall canyon, the corsairs of Almissa’s Sagittas ships attacked the fleet in the Adriatic and retreated very quickly in the canyon, far from the their pursuers. The citadel located on top of the rocks offers a fantastic view over the sea and the canyon, now crossed by highways.
