Klapa singing

Klapa singing

Numerous  tourists and Omiš-enthusiasts  will tell you that July is the month when you’ll see Omiš at its best and be able to feel the true spirit of the town. One of the most important reasons for this is by all means the famous Festival of the Dalmatian klapa, that during warm summer nights of July fills the streets and squares of the old town with pleasant sounds of authentic Dalmatian klapa music, recognized and protected as part UNESCO’s world heritage. Its’ notes softly permeating the old town’s narrow alleyways remain  the first thing many visitors will remember when thinking of the town on the Cetina River.

There is something incredibly warm and intimate about the small-town Christmas atmosphere - with people merrily greeting each other in decorated streets, klapa groups singing Christmas carols and the scent of traditional fritule doughnuts and mulled wine filling the air. If you want Christmas from American movies, the Omiš Christmas Fairy Tale that turns Omiš into a true Christmas town every December is an absolute must-see. But, be warned, you won't find wild concerts there, or open-air parties with tens of thousands of people. But you are sure to find the true spirit of Christmas and a friendly atmosphere that no big city can offer.

Dalmatia Ultra Trail

Dalmatia Ultra Trail

If we had to suggest the best way to experience Dalmatia, its landscape, history and the most important tourist attractions, one of the answers would definitely be - Dalmatia Ultra Trail (DUT). But only if you're willing to put in some sweat. DUT is a unique annual trail race starting from Omiš, with a changing route that leads across four mountains (Omiška Dinara, Biokovo, Mosor and Kozjak), three rivers (Cetina, Jadro, Žrnovnica) and a whole range of tourist attractions such as the Omiš Fortica or ancient Salona. And all this along mountain trails and long-forgotten paths that Dalmatian labourers for centuries used as the fastest connection between the Dalmatian hinterland and the sea.
