The municipality of Pojezerje (1,233 inhabitants in 2001) is located in the northernmost edge of the County, in the northern part of the Neretva valley in the Karst highlands part. This is one of the very few municipalities in Croatia whose name does not match any place in the municipality. The seat of the administration is the village of Otrić-Seoci (657 inh.), formed in 1980 by the merging of the villages of Otrić and Seoce; the other villages are Kobiljaca (241 inh.), Mali Prolog (31 inh.), Pozla Gora (62 inh.), Brečiči (deserted), and Dubrave (deserted).
