The river Cetina – One of the nicest places in Croatia

Without any doubt, the river Cetina is one of the nicest places in Croatia where you can experience the magic of a rafting adventure.

It is situated in a luscious region surrounded by quaint little villages. There are lots of stories surrounding the naming of this river. Passed down through the centuries several theories on the naming of the Cetina River have emerged. One possibility is that some of the first Croatians that came down from Northern Europe towards the warmer Southern coast, finding the river and naming it Cetina because it reminded them of the river “Cetynia”, in Southern Poland which was their last Nomadic residence.
A more likely possibility is that the Cetina river derived its name from the Latin word “Kentona” that was given by tribe Dalmates. Croatians over time changed this Latin word to Cetina.
