per person

Join us on this unique tour and find out the history and secrets of the once independent state Poljica Republic.

It’s crucial to point out that The Republic did not have a ruler in one person. The people once a year elected their representative, the Grand Duke.

The fact that Thomas Moore’s visit allegedly inspired him to write his famous work, Utopia, speaks volumes about the quality of life in this small Republic.

Once a defending barrier from Turks, ancient Poljica stands proudly today with its great history and unparalleled beauty.
After the short history lesson on the location of the Saint George church, you will see one of the best local secrets and breathtaking views of the canyon of the river Cetina and the pirate town – today is known as Omiš.
