Such a remarkable structure, beautifully designed and built. The green water of the river Drina with inverted image of the bridge gives a soothing experience to the eyes. Definitely worth visiting.

Pictures speak for themselves. Very looked after bridge, nice walk and views on the river. Plenty of food photos to be taken of the surroundings and hinterlands. Be kind and purchase a souvenir from the salesmen along the bridge.

Your typical old bridge. You can't drive over it with a car tough. It looks really good. There is also a nice terrace to drink something on the side. Stupid thing is that on the other side there is nothing, very strange
