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.

  • Nice town on the Cetina River where you can rafting, canyoning and or boat trips. Also the walk and visit to the robbers nest of pirates is fun to do. You can also lie on the beach and swimming in the sea. Music to do, too many to mention.

  • Excursion from Baška Water is more like a pleasure walk with picnic. We traveled about half an hour along the scenic road along the sea and mountains with magnificent views. Short walk to town, free time to wander and have a coffee. Further 45 minute boat ride and still excellent views! Lunch at the Cafe under a huge tree. Main dish-local traditional cuisine of meat under the lid. In a huge skillet chicken and veal along with potatoes, sprinkled on the lid of the coals and cook for at least two hours it is very delicious! Half day excursion, three were already in the hotel. OMIS, decided to go there again, highly recommend!

  • OMIS is a nice a little less touristy village that feels good! We visited the old city which is very cute and we're climbed above the tower. We rented a kayak to discover the river Cetina (120 kn 4 hours). The landscape is very nice.
