Photographer's Note

Located in the heart of Dalmatia, Omis (10,000 inhabitants), is a typical Dalmatian, historic town, with preserved medieval old town, narrow streets, Renaissance buildings and Mediterranean scents. This city has a very rich and turbulent past, which significantly exceeds its size. In the Middle Ages (from the tenth to the fourteenth century), when Dalmatia was under the rule of Venice, which can not be overcome was the seat of the pirates of Omis. As a perfect sailors, but no less bold and ruthless robbers, pirates of Omis for almost two centuries, sailing on the Adriatic supervised. Attacked primarily on the Venetian sailboats and Venetian estates. Since the times of the Crusades also attacked the ships that carried the Crusaders bound for Palestine, Pope Honorius III launched a crusade against the inhabitants of Omis, which led to their downfall. In the middle of the fifteenth century Omis surrendered to Venice and was named Almissa. Under her reign remained until the fall of Venice in the early nineteenth century. The pirate history of the city testify, preserved to this day, fortresses Fortica and Mirabella (of which there is a splendid view of the entire Middle - Dalmatian reservoir).
