It is supposed that the name of this city, Omiš, developed from the Slavic Holm, Hum as a translation from the Illyrian – Greek word Onaion, Oneon, meaning “hill” or “place on the hill”, but there is also the possibility that the name of the settlement Onaeum was derived from the name of the river which was called Nestos by the Greek colonists in its lower flow, during Antiquity.
Latin names during Ancient Rome were Onaeum, Oeneum, Alminium, and Almissum. During Medieval times the name was recorded as Olmissium, Almiyssium and from the end of the 15th century, when the city fell to the authority of Venetian Republic, its name was the Italian Almissa.
Omiš was well known in the past by the Corsairs of Almissa (Omiški gusari) whose Sagittas (ships) (Genitive case: Sagittae, translated as The Arrow), brought fame to them because they were built for attack and fast retrieval into the mouth of the Cetina River, protecting the town from foreign invaders. At a very early date, neighbours of the Corsairs of Almissa, the highlanders of the Poljica Principality  (Poljička Republika), became their friends and allies. This allowed them to harass the seaborne trade, without fear of a sudden attack from inland.

In the Priko neighborhood, on the right bank of the Cetina River, stands the site with the most historic significance: the pre-Romanesque Church of St. Peter (Crkva Sv. Petra) from the tenth century A.D. This single-naved edifice, with a cupola and apse, was used in the 18th century as a Glagolithic seminary for novice priests.
Today, Omiš’s economy is based on farming, fishing, textile and food-processing industries and tourism.
Within the limits of the town lie the following settlements:
The Omiš Riviera stretches for twenty kilometers (12 miles) along a coast of exceptional beauty, with many perfect pebble, sandy beaches, bays, steep cliffs and a crystal clear sea. The mood is caught in an inscription on the lintel of a Renaissance palace in Omiš: “GRATIAS AGO TIBI DOMINE QUIA FUI IN HOC MUNDO” (Thanks be to Thee o Lord, that I have lived on this Earth). The destinations of Radmanove Mlinice and the Gubavica waterfalls (Velika and Mala Gubavica) are also points of interest. Radmanove Mlinice, located five kilometers (3.1 miles) up to the canyon of Cetina River, is an excursion/picnic place famous for bread baked under an iron lid (peka) and for fresh trout that can be caught from the river.
The Cetina River is a great place for those who like active holidays (white water rafting, canoeing and kayaking). Recreational activities, in Omiš, also include: free climbing, cycling, tennis, football (soccer), basketball, 9-pin bowling, bocce, paragliding, beach volleyball, windsurfing, water-
