The mineral-water springs at Slana Banja and Kiseljak are amongst the greatest natural resources in Tuzla. The underground exploitation of raw materials, however, has created such large sinkholes that a good part of the old town has caved in.



In recent years much effort has been put into a planned revitalization of the area. What remains of the old town is still charming and while strolling through the centre you forget the industrial zone on the far side of the city.

Tuzla is a university and educational centre, so there are always plenty of caf's and clubs to visit for younger travellers. The National Theatre (Pozorisna st. 4) was built in 1898 during Austro-Hungarian rule and is the oldest in the country. Local productions are held regularly and although it's a rarity to have plays or concerts in English, they do have some excellent shows.

The Portrait Gallery
(Ratka Vokica st.) has continuous exhibitions of work by local and international artists. Ismet Mujezinovic's Gallery (Klosterska st. 17) is mainly dedicated to Mr Mujezinovic himself. He was a painter from Tuzla, famous enough to have a gallery established in his name and a monument erected in his honour. The Eastern Bosnia Museum (Dindic mahala st. on number 21, tel: + 387 35 318 320.) exhibits archaeological, ethnological, historical and artistic pieces and artifacts from the whole region. The Museum is open Monday to Friday from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m.



Apart from Tuzla's many beautiful mosques, there is also the Orthodox church that went untouched throughout the war. The Franciscan monastery in town is still very active and the Catholic community in Tuzla is rather large.



Just out of town in the village of Breska is a 200-year-old Catholic church. Being so far from the sea and not having a Neretva or Una River nearby, the administrations of the northeast have embarked on a mission to create large artificial lakes.



Panonika Lake
, created near the saltwater wells in the centre of town, was visited by 100,000 people in less than two months when it first opened. A fifth of the lake is saltwater which acts as a natural cleanser. The complex has recently been enriched with another artificial lake. For more information see: www.panonika.ba. Entry fee is approximately 1,5 KM. 

The town has several other attractive picnic locations: Ilincica is the closest to town; Lake Modrac, a massive lake lined with beaches, restaurants and bed and breakfasts, attracts the biggest crowds; Konjuh Mountain is the best area if you're looking to do some hiking
