We suggest the existence of two BLRs in 3C 390.3 which have different locations. The BLR1 is located at a distance in accordance to the hydrogen line time lags of ≈20 days. This disk-like region emits predominantly low ionization lines. The BLR2 forms around the radio-jet and is located at the distance corresponding to time lags of ≈ 40-80 days. The BLR2 is responsible for most of the emission in UV lines. The Lα line partly forms in BLR2 (40-60%) and partly in BLR1.
