Baćina Lakes

 Bacina Lakes are a frequent tourist destination. They abound in freshwater fish but there are also grey mullets, which made the Lakes their natural habitat after the tunnel drilling. The area is a true promised land for nature-lovers and anglers. Bacina Lakes are located on the main road (M2).

On the locality of Sladinac are the remains of antique walls and mosaics belonging to the Roman habitation Praetoria. The remains of an early Christian basilica from the 6th century have been found here. A necropolis of stelae, mostly sarcophagi and slabs, has been found next to the ruins of the church of St. Andrew.

Bacina Lakes , a pearl of unspoiled nature, consist of seven lakes, six of them forming a bluish green necklace. The lakes are located between the Neretva River Delta, the sea and the surrounding mountains, in the place of Bacina, close to Ploce. Their names are: Ocusa, Crnisevo, Podgora, Sladinac, Vrvnik and Plitko jezero. The entire area of the lakes amounts to some 20 square kilometers. Their depths range from 5 to 35 m. The water in the lakes is brackish, meaning they are connected with the sea. The lakes are cryptodepressions, because the surface of the lakes lies 80 cm above sea level and the bottom of the lakes lies below sea level. Therefore, salty water can be found at the bottom of the deepest, 50 m deep lake Crnisevo. Bacina Lakes lie by the road Makarska - Dubrovnik.

Bacina lakes, not far from the traffic route in the Neretva River valley, is another place of beauty which must be visited. North-west of the Neretva estuary, only two kilometres from the port city of Ploce, a series of six picturesque lakes lie in a rocky valley. The bottom of Bacina lakes lies below sea-level, while the lakes surface lies above it. Trade brought the ancient Greeks to this area, and during the time of ancient Rome the area was a part of the province of Dalmatia. The city of Narona was then one of the largest economic end cultural centres on the Adriatic Coast. The migration of people here brought Croatians principalities. The Neretva principality had dominance over the sea and from the 11th Century was a part of the Croatian Kingdom. This region is most famous for its gastronomic specialities. Eels, black water hens and frogs legs, amongst others, are specialities of the Dalmatian kitchen and present an excellent reason to visit the area.
