UVAC -(119km) is the longest tributary of the river Lim, rising under mountain Ozren. Because it is mountain river, it has great hydro energetic potential. Three artificial lakes are built on this river: Zlatar lake, Sjenica lake and Radoinja lake. One part of the Uvac canyon is protected as Special Nature Reserve Uvac because it is habitat of griffon vulture and special species of fish, especially Brook Trout, which is very rare in Europe.
