Balkana is a lake located in the municipality of Mrkonjić Grad, in the western part of the Republika Srpska, Bosnia and Herzegovina.

It was formerly known as Balukhana and Balukana, derived from Turkish baluk, meaning "fish" and hana, meaning "habitat". The name, over time, transformed into Balkana (there is no connection to the name "Balkans").
