Modro jezero (Blue Lake) Imotski, Croatia

Oct 5th 2010 at 3:23 AM

Blue Lake, is a big chasm near Imotski. On the southeastern side is surrounded with Jezero quarter of Imotski. On the eastern side is Bazana and on the northeast is Bage settlement. The depth of the lake from the upper rim is 220 meters. Water level could reach more than 90 meters in the early spring when the snow from the Bosnian mountains melts. The water level reached 107 meters and the lake was overflowing at the south rim in 1914.

It is a popular place for tourists and Imotski residents who like to take walks to the main vista and back to the town, often several times per day. It is very accessible. There are several man made vistas in the lake offering beautiful views. Spending a few hours exploring it is highly recommended. Lovers tend to spend longer then that amount of time. It is the one of the most frequent reasons for parents scolding their kids who cannot stop exploring it.

There are stone built trails that go almost to the bottom of the lake. They are very busy during the summer when the young and not so young people go swimming there. The trails were build in year 1907, during the reign of Frantz Joseph. They were renovated many times. The last time they were fortified with concrete. They are in very good shape now, ready to take an onslaught of towners and out of town visitors, mainly the Imotski natives who left Imotski pursuing their carriers. Near the bottom of the lake there are three plazas that are quite popular with the visitors. You could hear a popular refrain "Dela, dela skolane moj" around one of the large flat stones where the kids play games
