A short walk along from the Blue Lake this is a fairly interesting castle. There are some nice views from the top. You might as well visit at the same time as the lake.

Near Blue lake on the top of the town Imotski you have to visit Topana forest and you will love it. Stone town with stone forest on the top of the lake.

These ruins were very fun to visit. It is nicely located on a hill on which you can look at the blue lake. You can walk from the blue lake walking trail all the way to the old fortress.

It is a nice fortress that you should visit when visiting the lakes, its a cool historic place and its located at the top the blue lake (5mins walk). Free to walk around.

Very cool place to look around some historic ruins. There is fantastic views over the valley. You can also look down into the Blue Lake. The views are fabulous and it's a very cool place to walk around and see some history.

This fortress stands as great symbol of Imotski and is well worth visiting - you will also find a football stadium close to it - which makes a bit weird architectural but in same time interesting combination.

Beautiful ruins located at the slopes of the blue Lake. Worth the visit but too much garbage around the old fortress, a shame people are throwing garbage down into a 1000 year old water wells! A good clean up at this location is needed.

Sometimes I just close my eyes and try to imagine how it all looked in the time when particular building was build. So, the first time I went to this fortress I was really impressed by the view from its walls and amazing Blue Lake...More

Very ordinary or common ruins of a middle age fortress but worth to visit when you travel around. You might be interested in Blue Lake also and vice versa. Try to get local domestic food in the city.
