Imotski is a small place in the interior of Dalmatia. Traveling there is a world far from the Dalmatian coast.
What is the secret charm of Imotski?
It is a historic city, but perhaps not in a postcard-like way like Dubrovnik. Far from being a tourist center, Imotski will unravel its stories if you scratch deep enough.
If you approach it from the shore, you will have to go through a tunnel through the mountain Biokovo. Yes, this immense rocky ridge takes away Imotski's view of the sea. But its karst formations are ‘to blame’ for several breathtaking natural wonders.
Imotski lakes are his most famous nature designs that have already been found on the tourist map of Dalmatia. The river Vrljika is also unique. A submerged karst river that passes under 5 different names during its 70 km flow.
The landscape of this entire region has inspired countless folk tales. A random rock, cave or sinkhole is never just that. In the imagination of the locals, they are home to fairies, angels or cursed rulers.
Mythology abounds with tragic heroes and heroines. But look beyond those annoying details. Because the creative power behind them is mild and poetic. Yes, Imotski is also known as the hometown of several excellent Croatian poets.
