Spring in my litlle town Omis

Springtime Song

My eyes can see it springtime, it's springtime, its springtime.
My eyes can see it springtime, the grass is so green!
The green grass, the flowers, the sunshine and showers.
My eyes can see it's springtime, and I am so glad.

My ears can hear its springtime, its spring time, its springtime.
My ears can hear its springtime, the birds sweetly sing.
The bird sing, the lamb bleat the frogs croak, the bees buzz.
My ears can hear it's springtime, and I am so glad.

My body can feel its springtime,its springtime, its springtime.
My body can feel its springtime, the air is so warm.
The warm air, the breezes, no frost and no freezes.
My body can feel its springtime, and I am so glad.

song for children by Nicole H.

What trip to take in springtime when you are in Omis?

A visit to the Cetina River beyond Omis is worth the trip, especially to the destinations of Radmanove Mlinice and the Gubavica waterfalls (Velika and Mala Gubavica).
Radmanove Mlinice are located 7 km up to the canyon of Cetina River. It is an excursion, picnic place famous for bread baked under the lid of iron (we called it "peka") and for fresh trout.
Nearby Radmanove Mlinice you can visit so-called "Islands of Love", pleasure for vacationers and you can reach them with motor boats, they can be rented at the bridge of Cetina River, also larger groups can rented bigger boat and if you do that then captain Vlaho, my good friend can take you to the Radmanove Mlinice and also to the Kastil Slanica.
Slanica is classic restau
