The main landmark along the seafront of Ploce town is the new church built in the 1990s. On the square in front of the church you also find a statue of a Croatian cleric.Before you reach the church there is a big Konzum supermarket where you can stock up on drinks and snacks for your onward journey.more
Although the Lakes are the Bacine population's pride, they love to show their historical monuments as well. It is thought that the three types of walls that surround the lakes derive from three different periods. The first date from Illyrian period, the second from the Roman, and the third from the period of the Moluski Croats. Although it is...more
There are no restaurants here. Bring some lunch-packets or ask the locals to offer you something to eat.
Favorite Dish: The fish world in the lakes is variegated, just like the lakes themselves. There are sweet-water fish, but also sea-fish.
None really, walking around whether it be day or night is safe in Ploce, its got some great walks and designated paths leading to some great views.
Ploce is the end station in Croatia from the train line starting in Sarajevo and passing through Mostar.We took the train from Mostar to Ploce. The fare was only 8.60 KM (around Euro 4.30) in September 2008. Currently there is a morning and an evening train from Mostar (Sarajevo) to Ploce.The train consisted only of 3 carriages, one second class...more

The main church in Ploce held its own beauty, it was strange and odd looking, yet it suited the towns atmosphere very well, it was relaxed, laid back..Yet beautiful, also historic.
This is your typical PLOCE street, alot of palms, few buildings, not many cars. there arent really any warnings, the population here isnt big, and a majority of it are elderly, its a safe, tidy little town that i wouldnt mind popping into again.
Not really a trap, but just a word of notice. In Ploce one thing that got on my nerve for some reason was the HOTELS and APARTMENTS blocking the views over to the ocean, the apartments were UGLY, simple white blocks, which left a sour taste in this otherwise sweet town.
Miscellaneous: Despite many bad changes to Ploce, the town still has alot to offer, fantastic views with picturesque mountains surrounding its vicinity.
There is the indescribable and above all unseen silent patter of the lake's waters and the rustle of the leaves from the surrounding trees, which can transport a man from his everyday world to a world of peace within a split second.
There is a palm tree lined promenade along the sea front. Here the ferry to the nearby island leaves and the local fishing boats and vessels bring in their booty. One man just arrived with his funny looking fish (picture no. 2).Ploce harbour is easily explored in an hour or two. There are plenty of cafes along the harbour too. The town was still...more
Crniševo (Crnishevo), Oèuša (Ochusha), Sladinac, Plitko Jezero, Vrvnik and Podgora are the names of the six lakes that occupy one hundred and thitry-eight hectares of paradise on earth. The average depth of the l is about twenty meters, but the thousands of colours mirrored in them are a secret that Nature will certainly never reveal to us.more
