Omis includes the area by the sea, the right and left sides of the river Cetina and the inland towards Split. A large part of the Omis inland is a region that was once more than six centuries old Poljica principality, which covered about 250 km2. Poljica was once an administrative area under the self-government of the people, which inherited its independence from the 13th century to the beginning of the 19th century. It consisted of 12 katuns, ie villages. It was a land of hard workers who cultivated every piece of fertile soil, small fields – fields scattered on the karst area of numerous scrapes, sinkholes and valleys… The region of Poljica is divided into Lower, Middle and Upper Poljica where various karst landscapes and beautiful stone villages intertwine. Poljica is most often associated with a centuries-old specialty – soparnik, which you can find about more about here. It is a fasting dish, consisting of chard and dough, and baked on the stove, directly under the grill. On the way from Omis to Gati, above the abyss of the canyon, he watches Meštrović’s statue of Mile Gojsalić, a heroine from Poljica from the 16th century who saved Poljica from the Ottomans with her wisdom and courage. You can find out all about Poljica in the Historical Museum in Gata.
