Overview

When we say the word Visegrad, the first association is Ivo Andrić, Nobel Prize winner and his famous  historical novel. “The bridge on the Drina” that wove him into the stars. Visegrad is a small lovely town in Republika Srpska, an entity of Bosnia and Herzegovina. Višegrad has parlayed this identity into a niche tourist industry by building Andrićgrad, a small but like able mock-historical city core nominally celebrating the author.

Note:

Trip Plan

After accepting the guests at the agreed location, such as our agency Encijan in the city Foca or our camp in the very heart of the Tara canyon in the morning hours (recommended time between 9h-10h), the next is a transport to the destination.

In Visegrad what we will visit first is the historic monument called Mehmed Pasa Sokolovic Bridge. It is a historic bridge in Visegrad, over the Drina River in eastern Bosnia and Herzegovina It was completed in 1577 by the Ottoman court architect on the order of the Grand Vizier Mehmed Pasa Sokolovic. Unesco included the bridge in its 2007 World Heritage List. This story wouldn’t be this much interested unless we don’t mention how Mehmed was taken away at an early age as part of the Ottoman devsirme system of collection of Christian boys to be raised to serve as a janissary. These boys were converted to Islam, raised and educated, but in turn were offered opportunities to work and to rise within the Ottoman imperial system.

After this we are going to visit Andricgrad. Andricgrad is the name of a construction project located in Visegrad, by film director Emir Kusturica. Some of the main objects of Andrictown are: Ivo Andric’s institute with a centre for Slavic languages, Fine arts Academy, Town hall, the Church of Saint Lazar, renaissance theatre, multiplex cinema, accommodation objects and much more. Andrictown attracts tourists from all over the world, as well as people from public life, some of them are: Novak Djokovic, world number one tennis player ; Jose Mujica, ex president of Uruguay; Monica Bellucci, an Italian actress, etc.

Ćevabdžinica “Kasaba” is located near the gate, on Mlada Bosna Street in Andrićgrad. The interior of the building corresponds to the external appearance and totally fits into the concept of Andrićgrad and there we will try traditional Bosnian meals.

If you want to enjoy the beauty of the Drina, it is best to sail in the tourist boats “Sonja” or “Zelenika” and strengthen into the fairy tale soul, which will give you a stunning view of the second largest canyon in Europe.

Our last stop is Dobrun monastery, also known as Kruševo, is located in the vivid mountainous area on the road from Belgrade to Užice, 12 km away from Višegrad, in the valley of the Rzav river. It is dedicated to the Dormition of the holy mother of God and was erected by župan Pribil and his sons Stefan and Petar in 1343. In its history the monastery was destroyed and reconstructed many times. In the rocks above the monastery there is a cave whose entrance area was closed with stone blocks. The monks lived there and would descend down to the monastery only during the big religious holidays.Within the complex of monastery there is a Museum of the First Serbian Upraising, The paintings gallery and a Museum of Dabro Bosnian Diocese of the Metropolitan.

After launch is transportation to Foca where the arrangement ends.
