Andricgrad is a tourist, cultural, administrative and educational complex situated on a peninsula between the rivers Drina and Rzav, at some 300 meters from the Visegrad bridge.
Andricgrad has emerged as an idea of professor Emir Kusturica, the famous director, about a stone medieval town and characters inspired by the works of the Nobel Prize winner, Ivo Andric. That is actually a vision of how Visegrad could have looked if it had not gone through Renaissance and other historical periods. In architectural terms, the town itself is a mix of different eras and styles that alternated throughout the history of this area: the Byzantine style, the Ottoman period, the Renaissance and classicism. During a walk through the main street, visitors can go back into the past: “it practically connects two periods – the Renaissance fragments with the Ottoman period and Byzantium”.
Professor Emir Kusturica: “At the entrance, a caravanserai meets the Byzantine Palace, and behind it will be what Austria could have built, but did not, as well as what the Ottoman Empire did not built what was supposed to. Finally, towards the main square, which is a kind of classicism, which was supposed to be built during the kingdom between the two World Wars, a street, which could have been made by Austria, with Renaissance parts will be developed.”
