Presentation of Lokvičići

The municipality of Lokvičići (1,037 inhabitants in 2001, 582 in the village of Lokvičići) is located about 60 km east of Split, relatively high above the sea level (600-700 m).
Just north of Lokvičići are three karstic lakes, being karstic holes filled with water, similar to the much more famous Imotski Red and Blue lakes nearby.
Until 1997 the area of Lokvičići was an exclave of the Town of Imotski, from which it separated, adding parts of the former municipality of Donji Proložac, today Proložac.
