Part of Inland Dalmatia, above Omis, called Poljica includes a group of villages, situated away from the seaside and hidden between mountains. Today’s territory of Poljica, once was known as the Principality of Poljica, existed more than 600 years, since the 13th to early 19th century. This old principality had quite developed democracy and social structure. The great duke of Poljica has been elected by people of Poljica each year on St. George’s Day in village Gata. The Poljica Statute is one of the earliest legal documents in Croatia, originally written in the 14th century and is a proof of how much ahead of their time they were. Traditional dish from Poljica – soparnik, dating back to the 16th century, has been given EU protection status and is issued with an EU geographical origin label.
