IMOTSKI TWO LAKES & WINE TASTING
Imotski two lakes & wine tasting is our new tour that explore hinterland of Dalmatia.
Blue Lake ( Modro Jezero ) is a karst lake located directly under 10th century fortress Topana. Like the nearby Red Lake, it lies in a deep sinkhole possibly formed by the collapse of an enormous underground cave. The total depth from the upper rim is around 220 meters, while water depth varies with season. This is a main summer location for habitants of Imotski and its guests. In spring, when the snow from surrounding mountains melts, it can reach 90 m, and in 1914 it reached 114 m, overflowing the southern rim. The lake is a popular destination for hiking and sight-seeing.
Just a few kilometers away stands the Red Lake (Crveno jezero), the deepest Karst lake in Europe and a 3rd largest sinkhole in the world. This depression is 528 m deep, whereby the depth of the water reaches up to 300 m with the bottom under the sea level. It is known for its numerous caves and remarkably high cliffs, reaching over 241 metres above normal water level and continuing below the water level.
On this tour we’ll visit Topana towe, Blue and Red lake, winery with a 200 year old traition and taste traditional products from Imotski like ham, sausage, homemade cheese and traditional donuts.
