From the Romans to Venetians, the Austro-Hungarians to Napoleon, Yugoslavia to an independent Croatia, Omiš has survived in some form under various ruling powers for over 2000 years. Nestled between the River Cetina, the Adriatic Sea and Dinara Mountains, Omiš is a true Dlamatian treasure. Pirates, curses, fortresses and the idyllic streets of the old town await you on this tour, which will provide insight into the rich history of this small coastal town on the Adriatic.

We will begin at the old cemetery, just outside the old town, where the ancient crumbling ruins of Roman sarcophagi are mixed amongst local burials from more recent centuries. We will take a moment to appreciate the sea views, looking down from the cemetery onto Omis’ port, before we head through the East Gate, one of the few remnants of the fortified wall that once protected the town from marauding Ottomans.

We will walk the main thorough-fare of the old town, taking in the beauty of the polished stone streets and stone buildings that harken back to the times of Venetian rule. We will cut through the back street that leads to the old pirate fortress, Peovica, and take a moment to admire the town from above. We will see churches, the House of the Happy Man, the Omiš coat of arms and the Pilar of Shame along the way, before ending the tour at the opposite end of the old town at the historical market square, where you can enjoy views of the Cetina River Valley, before we say our goodbyes.

Discover with me the history, culture and beauty that inspired me to make this small Dalmatian town on the coast my forever home.

Heather

Originally from the metro Detroit area in Michigan, I moved to Europe in 2000 for a study abroad program in Munich, Germany, where I fell in love with the European lifestyle and never left. Four years ago, I decided it was time for a new adventure and made the move to the Dalmatian coast in Croatia, a decision that I never regretted for even a second. For the past 8 years, it has been a dream come true to share my love and passion for the history and culture of Europe with international travelers as a Tour Director.
I studied Anthropology, German Studies, and International Studies at Wayne State University in Detroit, as well as the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universitaet in Munich. I speak English and German and I am actively learning Croatian as well.
I have lived in Michigan, Ohio, Ecuador, and Munich, but it’s Croatia that has really rooted itself in my soul. My love for this beautiful country I now call home grows deeper every day, and there is nothing that makes me happier than to share this love with clients as we explore the small coastal towns of Croatia together.
