Imotski is a new star in the sky of popular tourist destinations in the Dalmatian hinterland. Imotski is the city and heart of the Imotski region - an area that stretches beyond the Biokovo mountain to the border with neighbouring Herzegovina. Imotski region brings together a number of picturesque and fairytale villages and hamlets, and the town of Imotski itself is a place full of history and legends. Imotski and its surroundings rest on a fertile field formed by a tectonic depression at the foot of Biokovo, and the whole area is adorned by the carst forms with many pits and lakes for which Imotski is especially famous. The most famous lakes are Red and Blue. Red Lake is attractive because of the reddish soil that surrounds it and the strange slope - it is almost impossible to throw a stone into Red Lake, so this discipline is a favourite pastime of locals and guests. Blue Lake is located in the heart of the city and many seek refreshment here in the summer months, until the water in the lake dries up and the bottom becomes a football field. Not only lakes are a motive to visit Imotski - this city and the whole region are about 60 kilometres from Makarska, and even less takes to the nearest sea, so Imotski is an opportunity to relax in a quiet environment, near the beautiful beaches of the Makarska Riviera. Imotski owes a special boom in tourism to the Sv. Ilija tunnel through Biokovo, which brought the sea almost to the Imotski streets. And those are astonishingly wide, stone and charming, so they intertwine and rise up to several hundred meters above sea level to Topana - a fortress that rises above the city and the Blue Lake. Imotski as a cultural and historical entity includes the city centre with a number of representative civic houses with examples of neo and Art Nouveau style. If you have rented one of the apartments or holiday houses in Imotski, you will enjoy its cafes and restaurants, “in anticipation, longing for distance, distance; in the heart, in the breath of the mountain, the mountain” (op.a. Tin Ujević famous Croatian poets with his poem about longing for Imotski and other little places in Dalmatia).
