    The old town of Stanici includes those narrow alleys and old buildings that are great. It is only very small though and gets packed in the summer. There are only two of the passageways that have any shops or restaurants and the rest is still a residential place. We found one great place to eat in the one square we found, sorry cannot remember the...

  • Cetina Gorge

    This is a spectacular steep gorge that runs behind Omis. You can take a boat trip about 5km up the river which stops at a restaurant, take a car or take a raft back down the gorge. In the car, you can go further back but on the boat you see more. The road took us away from all of the crowds on the coast.

    The name of the restaurant Radmanove Mlinice means Radman Mills. The name stems from the fact that the restaurant is located in a old mill. There is a small exhibition of the tools used in the mills inside.

    It's on the bank if the river Cetina. The place is really beautiful and you can rent a canoe to paddle on the river, swim, hike, rent a bike etc. There are also basketball and football fields for the kids.

    Food is ok, though not really one of my favorites in Dalmatia. Still I'd say that the place is worth a visit..

    Favorite Dish: I ate grilled eels with potatoes and they were ok.

Omis Tourist Traps

    by davesut Written Aug 16, 2009

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    In an evening at Omis the tourist man, woman and child all head down to the main street market which is awash with tourist tat, ice creams and a couple of over priced fruit/veg stalls. It really is a place to avoid if you can. The road is always busy with vehicles and there is no avoiding it, the only road through Omis.

    do I look happy or what?
