This region is also characterised by its artificial
lakes, Hazna and Vidara. As in Tuzla, there are beaches
and organised water sports and fishing, as well as a
recreational field. The Hunting Centre of Gradacac
organises duck, rabbit, and pheasant hunts on 37,000
hectares of land. Every year in Gradacac there is an
international plum fair and a literature fair, both very
small and local, making it that much more enticing.
