The part of the old railway line
Sargan Eight is running 15 km from the village of Mokra Gora to the Sargan Vitasi station. An extension to Visegrad in the Republika Srpska, Bosnia and Herzegovina, was finished in 2010. It is a part of the old railway line that ran from Uzice to Sarajevo (from Serbia to Bosnia) and was lunched in 1925. The railway was being built for 4 years. There were around 3000-5000 workers engaged in the construction of the railway every day. The construction of the railway immediately allowed ready access to the rest of the world for many mountain villages. It closed down in 1974 due to its state of disrepair and mounting loses. The most interesting feature of this railway route, that earned it fame and the name "Sargan Eight" is the remarkable feat of engineering which spans a height of 300m with an extraordinary loop in the shape of "8". Sargan Eight is considered as the most attractive tourist museum type of a railway in Europe.
