25 things you must see and do while on vacation in Omiš!

Omiš is so much more than just sea, sun and beautiful nature. We often hear travellers who have spent many summers in Omiš talk of having discovered some new incredible thing to see or do that they somehow missed before. Although Omiš is a small town, it takes time and effort to discover all of its gems, some well displayed, some hidden even better. While it is perfectly fine to spend your whole vacation just lying on the beach and relaxing - to fully capture the spirit of the town and its people and to be able to say you have truly been to Omiš - there are many things you must experience. Here’s the full list, just for you:
