Drina river cruise
Have you ever wondered when was the last time you expirienced the countryside, without noise, polluted air and concrete all around you. If you want to rest from all of it and enjoy a completely natural environment, listen to the gurgling of the river, breathe fresh air, eat organic hand made food and forget all your burdens. We would suggest having a one-day boat trip on the Drina River during your visit to Višegrad . The canyon itself is the second largest in Europe.
In the past, the canyon of the Drina was known for its large streams and whirlpools and old wooden rafts that sailed there. By the end of the 1960s the dam of the hydro electric power plant at Bajina Basta was constructed in Perucac, which turned this section of the Drina river into a peaceful lake 52 km in length. Instead of rafts, today you can enjoy a Drina river cruise in a tourist boat. Upstream from Visegrad you also have another Visegrad lake, made on the Drina at the end of 80s. This lake is a perfect spot for fishing and water sports as well.
