NATURAL PHENOMENA

Cetina

CETINA RIVER


In the bottom of the highest peak of Dinaridi, deep in the inland of Zagora this karst beauty begins her journey towards the sea. Length of 105 km enables her curving along the dalmatian karst creating wonderful scenery. All the way from springhead till her mouth she passes through several big and colorful places like Vrlika, Sinj, Trilj, Blato na Cetini, Zadvarje and Omiš. In the last ten years it is extremly popular for active vacation (rafting, canyoning, kayaking) and when sightseeing tours are on you can't miss the great waterfall Gubavica. ​

Cetina

RED AND BLUE LAKE


They are located in Imotski, the town which is situated on the border between Bosnia and Herzegovina and Dalmatia. Red Lake was named after the red rocks that are almost vertical and surround the lake. This karst cave is high about 528 m, and so far measured depth of the lake is about 281 m which could be the deepest lake in Europe. The fact is that until this day a man hasn't seen with his own eyes or with sophisticated devices, touched and recorded the lowest point in the murky depths. Blue Lake is one of the most beautiful karst lakes in Croatia, which is also a favorite beach and promenade. ​ ​

Cetina

PENINSULA ST. PETER


In the port bounded by two peninsulas between mountain Biokovo there is a city Makarska. Peninsula St. Peter is a city park with long walking trail and beautiful beaches. At the top of this peninsula there is a church of St. Peter from 13th century and at the port entrance there is a statue of St. Peter who is also a guardian (patron) of the city. Under the statue there is a fence on which couples in love put their padlocks and throws the key into the sea, as a symbol of their eternal love. ​ ​ ​

Cetina

ROCK OF BRELA


Rock/stone of Brela which is the integral part of beautiful pebble beach "Punta rata" is also a trademark of Brela. It is located approximatley 30 m from the shore, high 20m, sourranded by pine trees looking like it rises from the sea. There are many legends about how the stone was found in the sea, but it certainly forms a unique image you will surley remember.​ ​

Cetina

RADMAN MILLS


​​ On its way towards the sea through the centuries the river Cetina has carved a beautiful canyon in which are located Radmans mills, only 6 km from Omiš. The power of water had been used for centuries to mill the wheat. Today this is an idyllically place where you can enjoy in peace, coolness, fresh air, sunbathing and swimming on one of the many river beaches of Cetina. ​ ​ ​

ZADVARJE - heart of Dalmatian hinterland

INFO

Zadvarje is a municipality located in the central Dalmatian hinterland and the hinterland of the coastal massifs Dinara and Biokovo, but it also covers a fraction of the Adriatic coast - the famous bay Vruja and the Dupci pass​.


Within the borders of this relatively small municipality (13.2 km2), with 9 settlements and a total of some 300 inhabitants , there are several unique, highly attractive and biologically very important elements: the magnificent Cetina canyon with one of the largest waterfalls in the Croatian karst, Velika Gubavica , and the fascinating and rugged slopes of the pass Dupci and the bay of Vruja. In the southeast, the Zadvarje landscape borders the Nature Park Biokovo, merging with its wooded northern slopes.

The settlement developed along the local road connecting the coast and the hinterland. It started evolving in the 18th century as an important market town at the foot of the fortress from the time of the Venetian-Turkish wars. At the end of the 19th and early 20th century Zadvarje started to flourish due to the start of construction and operation of the large hydroelectric power station Kraljevac. Terraced houses were built along the road, with their ground floors for commercial purposes and characteristic doors "na koljeno". The houses are built of stone, with one or two floors and pitched roofs. Some have spacious courtyards at the rear.
At the town centre formed a square, the so-called Obor (pen), where a rustic pole with a lamp was preserved and could serve as a flag pole. The famous fairs and derneks of Zadvarje once took place at this point. The southern side of Obor is closed off by the old stone building of the Cetina hotel, built in the early twentieth century. At its back there is a walled garden within which were once stables for horses and a blacksmith’s workshop. A little further to the south and the bottom of the hill, there is a large water tank with a naplav and fountain.
The administrative centre of the municipality, the settlement of Zadvarje, developed on the edge of Zadvarska ljut, a spacious karst plateau with a small karst field in the west, which, taking almost a quarter of the municipal territory, brings respite to the experience of the dramatic relief of the Cetina canyon and Gubavice, Dubci and Vruje. As a natural corridor between the hinterland and the coast, the area of Zadvarje has always been well controlled, as evidenced by the rich toponomastic and architectural legacy.

This unique record of municipal natural and cultural attractions is toured using the exquisitely designed trail of the MedPaths project, which includes both coastal and hinterland karst vistas of the Zadvarje area. ​
