At distance of 15 km from town Split, 2,5 km from the sea, following serpentine road you will climb up to a place where you will think that the time has stopped for at least 100 years. At approximately 6 minutes drive from the main road, you will have a breathtaking view of sea, islands, town Split and fishing village Stobreč.

Another feature is a new local road that is being built from Trogir to Omiš and it will be at distance of approximately 500 m from the village which will enable inhabitants an easier access to Split airport etc.
Podstrana is one of rare jewels where a harmony between ancient and new will be achieved thanks to local planning.
