This small city is surprisingly rich with culture. A traditional, 10-day Friendship Festival attracts various artists from around the globe. Isak Samokovlija, a famous Bosnian writer, was born in Goražde. Abdulah Sidran, one of the best-known dramaturges and writers, recently moved here. On a more pop note, the alternative musicians Elvir Laković Laka and his sister Lela, who represented BiH on Eurovision Song Contest in 2008, are also from Goražde. Rafting is also very popular here. Every year, the Tourist Organization organizes a rafting trip – Drina to Prača – when people travel the river on huge, wooden rafts. Buk, Goražde’s kayak club, has won numerous medals in the region and was named one of the best kayak clubs in the country.
