In 2007, UNESCO named the Mehmed Paša Sokolović Bridge, the bridge that inspired Nobel laureate Ivo Andric’s novel Bridge on the Drina, a World Heritage Site. Since that time, tourism has been identified as the main opportunity for economic development in the area. Although Višegrad does not have an overwhelmingly rich collection of cultural heritage assets, it does have three main sites of cultural and historic interest. The Dobrun Monastery and Old Town come from medieval times. The Mehmed Paša Sokolović Bridge is a testament to the ingenuity and beauty of Ottoman architecture. And the narrow gauge railway, just recently re-activated, is a symbol of Austro-Hungarian influence in the wider area. These are the city’s strongest tourism assets. Everything, though, is coupled with the natural beauty of the Drina River and the surrounding mountains.
