Step back in time and discover the story behind the fearless Kacic dukes: intrepid and feared Omis sailors, famed as pirates in the 12th and 13th century.
Once upon a time, the people of Omiš ruled the Adriatic Sea from the city of Split to the city of Dubrovnik. The ships and galleons had to pay for safe passage or risk a chance to fight against dangerous Omiš people. Two hundred years of Omiš’ dominance were based on the powerful fleet of oar-powered ships, called Omiške strijele (the Arrows of Omiš). The shallow draft enabled those ships quick maneuvering and also, in case of danger, an efficient retreat into the shallower river bed of the Cetina River. Overpowered, the merchants and military powers of those times proclaimed the Omiš people pirates.
Follow in the footsteps of the pirates on Omiš sightseeing tour. Let your imagination run and let the past times of brave and skilful Omis people come alive while visiting their fortress Mirabela built in the 13th century.
