Since I read the book I was waiting to see the bridge and figure out some scenes from this famous book. The bridge is very nice, so quiet and patient waiting for the time to pass. The day was nice sunny and the bridge was marvelous. You need some half an hour to see the site and than you must... More

Very nice place, the bridge is beautiful and its surroundings too, great for making photographies of it, Drina river is so nice and turquoise. My visit was very short, but next time I'll climb the hill too.

Built by the Ottomans, partly destroyed in the 90's, then completed renovated after the last Balkan war, this piece of Bosnian history is a feat of great architecture and engineering. Take a leisurely stroll around the bridge then proceed to the newly built Andrictown (within this town), which is named after the Bosnian Nobel winning author, Andric, to have coffee... More

If your are planning to go from Sarajevo to Belgrade or the other way plan your road trip via Visegrad. Its worth it just to Photo shoot and walk on that Bridge. Bosnia in General has very scenic views. Another reason why to go via Visegrad is that after the Serbian borders you will cross Mokra Gora national Park.

I started reading Ivo Andric's novel "The Bridge on the Drina" a couple of days before my husband and I set off for BiH. The book moved me on so many levels and it lent its magical literary hue to our entire visit to the country and this bridge in particular. When in Visegrad make sure that you walk along... More
