Water Body
Cetina is a river in southern Croatia. It has a length of 101km and its basin covers an area of 1463km2. From its source, Cetina descends from an elevation of 385m above sea level to the Adriatic Sea. It is the most water-rich river in Dalmatia.Geography and geologyCetina has its source in the northwestern slopes of Dinara. Rising from a spring at Milasevo near a small village called Cetina, 7km north of Vrlika, it flows 101km to the Adriatic Sea. A large artificial lake begins near Vrlika, the Peruća Lake, which was created by a dam some 25km downstream. Cetina then passes into the lower portion of the Sinj karst field, through the city of Sinj. After that it runs eastward, through the city of Trilj and then back westward around the Mosor mountain, before flowing into the Adriatic in the city of Omiš.Apart from its visible basin, the Cetina also receives a lot of water from the west Bosnian karst field via underground routes. Its lower course begins from the Gubavica Falls, at 49m above sea level, near the village of Zadvarje, 20km from Omiš. Here it leaves its canyon and flows into a valley which has nevertheless retained something of the appearance of a canyon.
