Mother nature has allowed a unique football match to take place again this weekend in the Croatian town of Imotski.
Imotski, situated in the Dalmatian Hinterland on the northern side of Biokovo, is home to a number of interesting tourist attractions, including the Blue and Red Lakes.
Any extremely dry summer and drought conditions have completely dried up the Blue Lake, meaning a traditional football match which takes place between Vilenjaci (Elves) and Vukodlaci (Werewolves) when the lake dries up will go ahead this weekend.
The match, which will take place on Sunday, 8 October with kick-off at 1:30 pm at a depth of 147 metres, was first played in 1943.
Since then the match has been played just 7 times, the last match being played in 2011.
Festivities, including local food and drinks, will take place after the match. For more details visit the link here.
