City on a grain of salt. Tuzla means a place of salt and it lays on top of the salt lake. It is suspected it has been there for around 7000 years as one of the oldest places in Europe.

Here is a view of the Modrac Lake just on the outskirts of Tuzla from the restaurant of a small hotel “Senad of Bosnia”.

Modrac is one of the largest man made lakes in Europe.
Lake Modrac was artificially created 1964., when a dam was built on the river Spreca in the town called Modrac, county of Lukavac with intention to support near by industry with water. The lake is approachable pretty much coming from any direction and accessible along its entire shore. It’s great for fishing and nature around it is very nice and calming.

One reason to visit the Balkans, and Croatia and Bosnia in general, is the great scenery. That´s atleast what I´ve experienced from books and programs. Hope to see this live one day!

The lake is poluted, and the shore is full of garbage. Local people do not care about the environment.

@alex - yes, we have some great, magnificent, breath-taking sceneries round here, however many of them destined to doom.

Anonymous, Modrac Lake is not polluted. We always hear all those stories from the people who don't like the lake or are ill fated.

The people are fishing all the time and if you have a boat you can have a nice swim in the middle of the lake.

I will take more photos of the actual shore to show you actually how it looks. Of course you can find rubbish here and there but it’s not that bad, like anywhere else in the world, and it’s not pristine clean that is for sure.

Still the nature is stunning. Our people are always very negative towards everything we have and we’ll never get anywhere like that. You should hear Tim Clancy who came from America and fell in love with Bosnia and is promoting it heavily now, he predicts that the only way forward for Bosnia is eco tourism.

This lake looks beeeeeeeeeeeeautiful Jazzy! I could sit there and stare across that water for hours!

And thanks for the "young" comment...sometimes I feel (and ACT!) like I'm still 16...guess chasing my four boys (18, almost 17, 11 and 9) keeps me young!

I'm just a big kid at heart...always on the go, roller-skating, riding my unicycle, the boys' scooters & skateboards and basically moving around like a squirrel!
