The Eye of the Earth, Croatia’s Cetina River Source

This splendid spring has an extraordinary shape and color and is one of the sources of the longest river in Dalmatia – the Cetina. It runs for about 65 miles before letting out into the Adriatic Sea. Its waters flow at the foot of the Dinara, the highest mountain massif in Croatia.



It is known as the “eye of the earth” due to its strong resemblance to an eye with varied shades of blue and turquoise. Seen from above, it is undoubtedly one of the most particular and fascinating beauties of the region. This small body of water is formed by a hole that penetrates depths unknown of the Earth, explored by divers who made it to 115 meters. This natural karst splendor leaves all visitors speechless.



The source is off the main tourist routes, located in Milasevo, near a small village called Cetina. It can be found via a path that leads straight from an Orthodox church, and further downstream, not far from the source lie the remains of one of the oldest Croatian churches which dates back to the 9th century.
