Otišić is a small village in the Split-Dalmatia County, Croatia. Located in inland Dalmatia, south of Vrlika, on the State route D1 between towns of Sinj and Vrlika. Otišić is a settlement in the Vrlika municipality, with a population of about 20, the majority of whom are ethnic Serbs (2001 census). The 1991 census, held before the War in Croatia (1991–1995), registered Otišić with a population of 1,006, out of which 996 were ethnic Serbs. During the War, the village was held by the Republic of Serb Krajina. In 2007, the settlement, which had up until then been a part of Sinj, was joined into Vrlika.
