That's exactly why we came up with 5 destinations you visited the most in Croatia in 2017!
Our countdown starts with Omiš, a little seaside town just a half an hour drive away from Split. The exciting zipline over river Cetina's canyons, rafting, charming Mediterranean streets, restaurants, cafes and 30 kilometers long sandy and pebble beaches make Omiš riviera one of the most visited Croatian destinations in 2017. Besides, thanks to its geographical position, Omiš is great for day trips on tourist boats to islands like Brač and Hvar.
However, if you want to experience everything Omiš has to offer, come to the Festival of Dalmatian klape (Festival dalmatinskih klapa) which takes place every summer in town or the Pirate battle event that reconstructs a 13th century battle between the locals and pirates.
