Visegrad is located in the far east of Republika Srpska, 16 km from the border to Serbia. With the recent renovation of the tourist railroad, as well as the construction of the Andrićgrad complex, Visegrad is becoming an attractive tourist destination.
Andricgrad was created as an idea of prof. Kusturica about a stone medieval town inspired by the works and figures of the nobleman Ivo Andrić. It is in fact a vision that Visegrad could have seemed to have not overlooked the Renaissance and other historical periods. Famous on the Drina Cuprija in Visegrad, it is the endowment of the great vein of Mehmed-pasha Sokolovic. The bridge was built in the period from 1571 to 1577, and was built by then the most famous Turkish architect Kodza Mimar Sinan. It was built in the eastern style and is a masterpiece of the then construction.
The forests, canyons and the banks of the river guard the traces of prehistoric, ancient, Roman and Byzantine culture. The 13th-century Raca Monastery is part of the Serbian medieval heritage. The unique folk heritage is represented by dinar cabinets that extend along the Drina bank.
The Perućac lake was created by the rebuilding of the river Drina, for the needs of the hydroelectric power plant "Bajina Bašta". The lake is an accumulating lake that is powered by water from the Drina river. Due to the steepness of the coast, the depth of the lake at only a few meters from the coast itself reaches an average depth of 3 to 8 meters. The middle of the lake represents the border between the Republika Srpska, Bosnia and Herzegovina and the Republic of Serbia. The lake is located in the natural curve of the Drina canyon between Bajina Bašta and Visegrad, and covers the Tara Mountain with the National Park Tara.
