Visegrad

In 1961, Serbian writer Ivo Andric won the Nobel Prize in Literature mainly for his book The Bridge on the Drina, published in 1945. It is a chronicle of the famous bridge in Bosnian Visegrad, a town where he spent some of his childhood. I bought the book in Belgrade and had the awesome experience of reading the book on the bridge. It’s a beautiful place that unfortunately saw some of the worst atrocities of the 1992-1995 Bosnian war.
