I was mid-way through "The Bridge on the Drina" when I visited the site itself. If you haven't read the book then this is just a very beautiful bridge, but with the added context from the book it becomes so much more. It's worth a visit just to sit and contemplate humanity. The bridge was closed for works when I... More

This bridge is an important part of the Bosnian history, which was very well described by Ivo Andrić in the Nobel prize awarded roman "The Bridge on the Drina". Today the bridge is still in wonderful condition. You can take a walk across it and maybe look other attractions of this charming town. Hint: read the book before visiting Višegrad.

This is the bridge at the centre of Ivo Andric's great novel "The Bridge on the Drina", for which he was awarded the Nobel Prize. To my mind it is just as elegant as the better known bridge at Mostar, and infinitely more peaceful and pleasurable to visit. It was built by Sinan, said to have been the greatest architect... More

On the way from Sarajevo going to Drina , the view is so wonderful . Green river , mountains and zigzag trails amazes me while we were driving there . Count the tunnels and you will sum up to 45 before you reach the Drina . It was really worth the trip . The bridge is so beautiful

Visited Serbia this summer with my family and had the opportunity to visit Easter Bosnia Republic Srpska with a family friend of mine. We rented a vehicle in Novi Sad, Serbia. One of the places I wanted to visit was the famous bridge built by the order of Grand Vizer Mehmet Pasha Sokolovic in the 16 th century. Mehmet Pasha... More
