Our celebrated writer Ivo Andrić won the Nobel Prize for Literature for his novel "The Bridge on the Drina", and it was this bridge and the historical background associated with it that were his main inspiration.

Today, next to the famous bridge, one of the main attractions in Visegrad is Andrićgrad,a visionary project of the famous director Emir Kusturica.

These boys were converted to Islam, raised and educated, but in turn were of-fered opportunities to work and to rise within the Ottoman imperial system.After this we are going to visit Andricgrad.
