Micro location of the town of Omis
The micro location of the town of Omis is very unique. The town is located on the estuary of the river Cetina, which formed the natural western border of the medieval town of Omis. Today, the town has spread across the river, and has overcome this natural confine, but steep mountains from the north and east and Adriatic sea from the south still remind us why, for such long time, Omis has been an inexpugnable stronghold that withstood endless scads of invaders throughout history. The town of Omis overlooks the island of Brac and the channel of Brac and throughout the history has always controlled the passage through the Brac channel. Today Omis is important touristic port for the exploration of the island of Brac and other Dalmatian islands.
