    You can easily find this attraction, as the tower is visible from almost any point of Omis. Be sure to visit this site, even if you are not a lover of history and ancient architecture. When climbing and descending from the Tower of Mirabella will open to you such beautiful city, karst Gorge of the river Cetina, surrounding mountains and the Adriatic Sea, that perhaps you've only seen on postcards. Entrance to the Tower begins deep in the old town, there are pointers to it. At the entrance sells tickets. There are reconstructed the entire plan for the curious pirate fortress to which actually included a tower. Climb the Tower sufficiently cool and golovokruzhitelen, the stairs are made of stones, which are very slippery, so it is advisable to climb the Tower in shoes that will not slip. While walking up to the top, attend a few lookouts, this very cool invented and thought, because with them you can see all the beauty of these places, and also do a very good photo. Inside the Tower also consists of several floors, we visited two above not climbed, so hlipkoj seemed ladder leading to the top. From the Windows of the towers also offer beautiful views.

    Better to visit BEFORE climbing a second Fortress (Starigrad), which is higher on the mountain. Simple upgrade, only the end of the path there is a period where it is very difficult to pass if you have a small child, as stage 2 destroyed (July 17). Upstairs offers a good view of the city and the mouth of Cetina.
