Omiš, Croatia

Omiš is a town and municipality in the Split-Dalmatia County. Its location is where the emerald-green Cetina River meets the Adriatic Sea.
Omiš is best known for the traditional klapa Festival. This festival is the highlight of Omiš's summer, the expression of the town's beauty.
Omiš was well known in the past by the Corsairs of Almissa whose Sagittas (ships), brought fame to them because they were built for attack and fast retrieval into the mouth of the Cetina River, protecting the town from foreign invaders. At a very early date, neighbours of the Corsairs of Almissa, the highlanders of the Poljica Principality became their friends and allies. This allowed them to harass the seaborne trade, without fear of a sudden attack from inland. In memory to the glorious days of Omiš pirates every year a traditional pirate battle is being held on 18.08.
