Play pirates in Omis once an impregnable stronghold for the corsairs of Omis during the "Middle Ages":http://www.history.com/topics/middle-ages. They plundered the Croatian coastline in speedy ships built for the purpose and then sought shelter in the estuary of the River Cetina. This estuary was guarded by the strategically placed Fortress Mirabella also known as Peovica. Visitors can still climb up there today and enjoy the same vantage point that afforded these pirates their success. Pleasure boats run a service to this town wending their way through the reed beds that line the River Cetina. A very fitting entrance to this unusual little town.
