Mimice is a small Dalmatian place between the Omiška Dinara mountain and the Adriatic Sea, only 12 km from Omiš, in Split-Dalmatia County. Unique in location, Mimice stretches from the mountain to beautiful pebble beaches: two city beaches are known for their white sand and numerous local beaches and coves in the area where everyone can find a secluded corner. Mimice is ideal for guests seeking a peaceful vacation with their families and friends, away from the summer crowds. For those looking for fun and entertainment, the proximity of the cities of Omiš and Makarska guarantees an unforgettable time. If you prefer sports activities and an active holiday, we recommend rafting, kayaking and ziplining on the Cetina River, free climbing, windsurfing, beach volleyball and much more.

Omiš is a small town where the Cetina River meets the Adriatic Sea, with a great background of three mountains: Poljička Planina, Mosor and Omiška Dinara. The landscape is unbelievably beautiful; it combines a river estuary, canyons, sandy beaches and dizzying cliffs. Omiš’s origins come from the small settlement of Oneum, which lay at the very foot of the impressive mountain guarding the town from the north – Omiška Dinara.

It is a fascinating fact that the inhabitants of medieval Omiš were pirates. In the 12th and 13th centuries, Omiš pirates controlled the sea route from Omiš to Dubrovnik, and all ships that sailed by Omiš were forced to pay for the free passage. Modern Omiš is where you can find numerous cafes, restaurants and shops. In the city’s relaxed atmosphere, you can still feel the spirit of Dalmatia as it once was.

Makarska is one of the most beautiful tourist destinations on the Croatian coast, characterized by the imposing mountain Biokovo and the beautiful coastal landscape. A walk through the historic center and romantic stone streets will show you typical Dalmatian stone houses and squares, old churches, galleries and museums, and numerous attractions worth seeing. The famous Kačić Square with the Church of St. Mark is the main attraction, and the picturesque Kalelarga Street is not to be missed. Next to it is a local fruit and vegetable market.

Makarska is also known for its excellent tourist offer and nightlife, beautiful beaches in the city, and surrounding area. Those looking for an active holiday can enjoy cycling, sailing, jet-skiing, basketball, football, volleyball, paragliding, hiking, rafting, fishing, diving and many other activities.

Split is the second largest city in Croatia and one of the most popular destinations on the Adriatic. The town, which is world-renowned for the impressive Diocletian’s Palace in the center, lives with its slow rhythm that is easy to get used to. Split is known for its authentic historical sights that witness its turbulent and long past. See Diocletian’s Palace, the Iron Gate, the Brass Gate, the Silver Gate, the Golden Gate, the statue of Gregory of Nin, the Cathedral of St. Duje, many small churches, Peristyle, city cellars and numerous other historical monuments.

Dinara is the highest mountain in Croatia. Although not of remarkable height – it does not exceed 2000 m – its configuration and length form one of the most impressive mountains in Croatia. Its massif, 20 km long and almost 10 km wide, ascends as a natural boundary between Dalmatia and Bosnia and separates two different worlds: the Mediterranean and the continental. It’s incredible; several hundred meters high southwest walls attract everyone at the foothill. Abundant, flowery meadows and forests add to the area’s natural beauty. Climbing to the top of Dinara requires good shape because all approaches are long, steep and difficult. The Croatian Mountaineering Association, with mountaineering clubs in Knin and Kijevo, organizes group climbs to their peak every year.
