Mila Gojsalic, Heroine: Her origins are from village Kostanje in Dalmatian hinterland and she was a distant descendant of Croatian King Gojslav. She lived in time of Ottoman wars in Croatia. In 1530, Ottoman Ahmed-pasha gathered an army of 10,000 men with a goal to conquer Poljica. He made a camp in Podgrac. Mila Gojsalic was among the local women forced to lose their virginity to Ahmed-pasha. Because of that act she infiltrated the Turkish camp and blew up the munitions stockpile, killing Ahmed-pasha and numerous officers and soldiers. That act completely surprised and confused remaining Turkish soldiers who were then overrun by people of Poljica.\n\nIn her birthplace, every summer there is a cultural event called The Days of Mila Gojsalic. Her house is still in the village and is a tourist stop. A statue of her is installed in the town of Omis and an opera by Jakov Gotovac was composed to honor her.
