Lake Modrac is a man-made reservoir located in the northeastern part of Bosnia & Herzegovina, near the city of Tuzla. It was created in the mid-1970s by damming the Spreča River.
The primary purpose of constructing Lake Modrac was to serve as a reservoir for water supply, irrigation, and industrial purposes in the region. The dam also contributes to flood control in the area. The lake covers an area of approximately 17 km2 and has a maximum depth of around 20 m.
Lake Modrac is surrounded by picturesque landscapes and wooded hills, creating a tranquil and scenic environment. The clear blue waters of the lake and the surrounding greenery make it an appealing destination for visitors.
The lake offers various recreational activities for locals and tourists alike. Swimming, fishing, and boating are popular activities during the summer months.
There are designated areas for swimming, and the lake is known for its relatively clean and well-maintained waters. Fishing enthusiasts can try their luck catching carp, pike, perch, and other fish species that inhabit the lake.
Additionally, Lake Modrac has a promenade along its shore, providing a pleasant walking and cycling path for visitors to enjoy the natural beauty of the area.
