Unique experience with a private local guide
East of Split lies an area once known as Poljička republika (The Republic of Poljica). It stretches all the way to the gorgeous town of Omiš, situated at the mouth of the Cetina river.
Believe it or not, this republic was independent from the thirteenth century until the occupation by Napoleon's army, at the beginning of the nineteenth century.
It's organization, regulations, fairness of rulers, together with spectacular beauty of the surrounding nature (mountains, fields, the river, the canyon…), made this place a world of its own.
Here is an interesting fact: in 1960 a Russian scientist M. P. Aleksejev claimed that Thomas Moore had written "Utopia" (published in 1516) based on the traditions and customs of the Republic of Poljica, which he saw as an ideal model of fair and free society.
P. S. If you book this tour, don't forget to bring an extra memory card for your camera, because the landscape you are going to see will blow you away.
This will be "off the beaten path experience".
I will show you a part of this region most visitors never get to see. So close to Split but, yet, so unknown.
I'm talking about a combination of driving and walking. You'll have a chance to see a bit of life in the rural areas, a lot of breathtaking landscapes and I will tell you some very interesting stories about the past of this area and it's traditions.
You'll get to know Dalmatia in it's purest form.

Such a beautiful part of the world. VJ knew and showed us all the best views. So many photos and happy memories. The visit to the old water mill was in a lovely, peaceful setting where we sat and enjoyed a glass of wine and we were lucky enough to see the mill working. This guide comes highly recommended
