Visegrad

Visegrad

Visegrad’s best-known sight, the gracefully proportioned arched bridge over the Drina River, was built during the Ottoman Empire in 1577. The bridge has become famous because of Nobel-prize-winning Yugoslav author Ivo Andrić’s book, The Bridge on the Drina, in which the bridge plays a unifying and central role. It is now a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
