From its source, Cetina descends from an elevation of 385 metres (1,263 ft) above sea level to the Adriatic Sea. It is the most water-rich river in Dalmatia. Whitewater Rafting became quite popular on the river Cetina and is one of the most fun and exciting things to do in nature.
Rafting is one of the best tours to go on, whether solo or with a group of friends/family. The easy to get into experience being a favourite among many, but where should you go after spending your energy? Whilst there are also several other tours / excursions you can partake in like Ziplining, Kayaking or exploring National parks, it’s best to take a breather and relax a bit.
The rafting experience will certainly make you feeling a bit hungry, but luckily for you there’s a place nearby that is famous for it’s delicious food. The so called place is called “Radmanove Mlinice“, the restaurant and camping spot attracting locals and tourists alike for it’s refreshing and rustic charm.

Another interesting thing about Omiš is that during the middle ages. Omiš pirates used rowing boats, also known as “Omiš arrows” in the direct translation. One of the most important characteristics of the boats being their shallow waterline, which enabled them great maneuverability. Omiš pirates also built an underwater wall at the very start of the river bottom, which proved to pay off tremendously. The wall having only one small opening at a specific location that would let Omiš pirates through, but would close with a chain link that would end up marooning the ships of the invaders that chased after them.
