This beauty takes rise from the five strong karst wells on 380 m of  sea-level height, at the foot of Dinara mountain (1831 m) and Gnjat (1801 m), a few kilometres north from Vrlika. From there it flows south-east through the field of Sinj and Trilj to Zadvarje, then it flows west, before the very mouth and the town of Omiš. There it flows to the Adriatic sea, flowing to the south.

With its 100 km, the Cetina river is the longest Dalmatian river and the waterfall "Gubavica" (48 m) on the foot of Zadvarje is one of the largest in Croatia. During the summer Cetina has a very small flow - which means 2-4 m3/sec. and is caused by accumulation and turning the water through tunnels due to water-power needs. During the rainy season when energetic needs are maximally fulfilled, the flow rises at a great degree.

This river has cut its way in the fields and rocks, creating lakes surrounded by rich vegetation as well as canyons deeply cut-in between imposing cliffs and the nature round it is still untouched and virgin clean.

Spend an active sports-recreative holiday on the most beautiful Dalmatian river, breath the fresh air of the untouched nature, relax your brain and activate your body.
