Jablaničko Lake is an artificial reservoir situated on the Neretva River, in the northern region of Herzegovina, Bosnia and Herzegovina.


Stretching from Konjic to Jablanica, alongside the M-17 highway, this picturesque lake was created in 1953 following the construction of an 80-meter high arch dam on the Neretva River, located 5 km upstream from Jablanica.

Jablaničko Lake has become a beloved weekend retreat, renowned for its serene environment ideal for fishing, peaceful rafting, swimming, and camping. The area is dotted with numerous restaurants offering local delicacies.
