Cetina, the largest Croatian coastal river, springs near the homonymous village in the north-western part of Dinara. Cetina springs on eight other places among which the largest spring is 130 meters deep Glavaševo lake. It ends by pouring into the Adriatic Sea near the town of Omis. Cetina is now a popular tourist destination that gathers many tourists wanting adrenaline since its rapids and waterfalls are just perfect for rafting. A mixture of rapids and quiet flow of the river is a true refreshment for the body and spirit. Like a true artist, this karst river carved an impressive canyon on its way to the sea, a canyon mentioned by an Italian travel writer and naturalist, Alberto Fortis, in 1774. The same canyon gained a status of a protected landscape in 1963.
