Fortress Stari Grad (Fortica)

Reviewed By Les G - Horsham, United Kingdom

We unintentionally took the steep way up to the Fortica (from the river side) and had not appreciated that there was no definite path, just red and white circles/stripes to mark the correct, rather tortuous, route.
It was more of a climb over rocks, scree, holding onto pine trees to assist us.
It took us around an hour with our 50+ legs!
The view at the top was incredible, so worth the climb.
We felt sorry for the girl who works there having to make this journey every day.
The way we descended was more of a path, and again clearly marked, an easier option!
Take plenty of water with you, and wear walking boots, or trainers with good grip soles.
Don't forget a camera.

Omis and Cetina River

Reviewed By Travelfan - Los Angeles, California

Omis (pronounced Omish) harbor is flanked by natural stone walls. This used to be the center of pirate activity, and there are remnants of watchtowers built high on the rocks where townspeople would watch for incoming pirates. A short walk from the dock (we arrived by boat) is the old town, with its alleys, shops, and restaurants. Immediately upon arrival, our group walked through the old town to the river, where we got a slow motor boat through the river gorges. Lovely scenery, very quiet, and clear water. Motored upstream for about 45 minutes, then stopped at restaurant Romanove Mlinice (included in our boat ride) for a snack (see separate review). Trip back was about 30 minutes. Enjoyed walking through the small old town and seeing the towering stone walls. Very different than other ports, and very charming.

Omis Cetina Canyon

Reviewed By danniddery - Toronto, Canada

The Cetina river/canyon is pretty amazing. As you start off notice the fortifications guarding the town of Omis and the river mouth. Apparently used to fight off the Turks many years ago. The walls of the canyon are significant. Very picturesque. Along the route our taxi navigator pointed out a few sights, one of which was the zip lining which occurred high above our heads. Apparently one such line was 700 meters in length. Touted as being the longest in the world.

Fortress Mirabella (Peovica)

Reviewed By Fly_Tyer_99 - Bromsgrove, United Kingdom

You can enter the 13th Century Peovica by paying 20 kunas and then climbing a few short steps to get marvellous views of Omis. The steps are a little tricky at the top and there is a ladder that you have to climb at the very top but the views are spectacular. My only worry is the lack of health and safety - the walls at the top are only a few feet high and someone could easily trip and fall over the side. The top is not for the feint hearted.
