Bosnian Podrinje canton is the area around the main city of Gorazde, but also includes Pale-Praca, Foca-Ustikolina.
Gorazde lies on the river Drina on the bottom of the mountain Jahorina. This is the principal transit road in the south-east region of Bosnia.
Pale-Praca has a favorable location with a mild climate and rich forests, so the area was populated very early and there are numerous remains from the medieval times throughout the area.
The whole area has a very high unemployment rate, and incentives were recently introduced for companies to move here.
