Imotski is a small town situated on the northern side of Biokovo massif, Dalmatian Hinterland, Croatia. The town is located close to the border with Bosnia-Herzegovina, by the towns of Posušje and Grude. The nearest coastal town is Makarska.

Imotski is known for its medieval fortress on the rocks of Blue Lake. Another phenomenon is the Red Lake which looks like an eye in the scenery. Both lakes are said to be connected with underground channels to the Adriatic Sea. The town was first mentioned as Imotski in the 10th century. It was held by the Turks from the fall of Bosnia in 1492 until 1717 when it was captured by the Venetians.

During our first stay to visit the two sinkholes in Imotzki we had not found the time to concern ourselves with the place itself.
