Jablaničko jezero

Jablaničko jezero (Jablanica Lake) is artificial lake in central Bosnia and Herzegovina. It was created in 1953 when a hydroelectric dam was built on Neretva River to generate electricity. The size of this lake is 1440 hectares and its average depth is 70 m. This is a popular vacation destination where people enjoy swimming, boating and fishing. That is the place where my husband and I had a wonderful time yesterday in the company of our friends who came from Rijeka (Croatia).
I’ll post more photos tomorrow.

It looks spectacular - and huge.

Reminds me of my sister's story when she saw an 'artificial lake': she said, 'it looks like real water to me!'

A very beautiful artificial lake and photos of it. I like the bridge and the reflections and am enchanted by the first photo with the arch of rose hips.
