Ever wonder what lies beneath the waters of a lake? Peruča lake in inland Dalmatia is an artificial lake on the Cetina river, the third largest in Croatia, preventing flooding in the fertile fields of Sinj area and powering hydroelectric plants.
In summertime, the accumulated water is released to quench the thirsty soil and the drop in water levels reveals hidden natural formations and human constructions, such as bridges built before the area was flooded. One such notable sight are the remains of a monastery in Dragović and the surrounding houses, barns, mills and dry walls. The colour of the soil is also an attractive sight.
The lake is popular for fishing, but also with rowing teams who use the excellent conditions to prepare for their Olympic and other bouts.
