Geographical Position

In the green oasis of the Dalmatian Hinterland, protected by a mild climate and located only 30 km from Split and 45 km from Makarska Riviera, lies a small, picturesque town by the Cetina river. At one time, this area had the most important bridge crossing in Dalmatia, and today it constitutes an important intersection of roads that connect the North and the South of the country. It is a real heaven for nature lovers, excursionists and adventurers. For centuries now, the natural beauty found here remained almost untouched, its historical legacy was mysterious and unexplored, and on some village properties it seems as if time has stopped.

The Trilj area boasts of a mild ambience, located between both sides of the river on the southeast of Sinjsko Polje, far away from the mountain range which encloses it – Kamešnica in the northeast and Mosor in the south. The flow of the Cetina river is also peaceful all the way to Trilj, and then the waters of the river enter the tight canyon of the steep rocky sides through which they rapidly flow to the threshold of the river mouth.
