Cetina river

Cetina river

Cetina is a river that belongs to the Adriatic basin and it is situated in Split-Dalmatia County. Its length is 105 km and flows into the Adriatic Sea near the town of Omis.
Cetina springs at an altitude of 385 its northwestern slopes of Dinara, near the village of Cetina, 7 km north of Vrlika, according to which the river was named. The source of Cetina is the  lake over a hundred feet deep and 15 km long.
The Peruća lake is an artificially created lake by a dam on the Cetina river 25 km downstream. After the lake, the river flows southward through karst areas, fields and canions, to the sea.
The lower part of the river Cetina is due to the relatively large height differences  used for the construction of several major hydro-power plants (Peruća, Orlovac, Đale, Zakučac  and Kraljevac hydro power plants).
