The beautiful and well-maintained beaches of Lake Modrac, which is predominantly situated in Lukavac Municipality, have been the favourite holiday spot for many Bosnians and Herzegovinians and they have named it the “Bosnian Sea”.
Modrac is an accumulation lake predominantly situated in Lukavac Municipality, even though it also touches the bordering areas of Tuzla and Živinice municipalities. It was created artificially by constructing a dam on the River Spreča. Lake Modrac is 12 kilometres long and 700 meters wide on average with a maximum depth of 14 meters. Stretching across around 1,500 metres and providing various facilities and amenities, the beautiful and well-maintained beaches in the local community of Prokosovići have always attracted visitors. The beach has restaurants, hotels, and cafes, as well as handball, basketball, and beach volleyball courts. For many years it was considered the best beach in Bosnia and Herzegovina. Various events have been held there over the years. In addition to this artificial beach, the Modrac lakeshore has many lovely spots for relaxation and recreation. Even today, many are happy to come to the lake on holiday. Guests can find accommodation in a hotel or a motel. As part of its catering and hotel business, “Em-Oniks”, a company from Lukavac, opened the “Senad of Bosnia Hotel”, sitting on the shore of Lake Modrac, in 2000, and the “Oniks Motel”, located at the main junction on the road from Lukavac to Tuzla, in 2008.
