    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.

    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.

Ploce Tourist Traps

    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.

    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.

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...

    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.
