Andrićgrad (Serbian Cyrillic: Андрићград, meaning "Andrić's town") is the name of a construction project located in Višegrad, Republika Srpska, Bosnia and Herzegovina by film director Emir Kusturica. The town is dedicated to Yugoslav novelist and Nobel Prize winner Ivo Andrić.

Construction of Andrićgrad, also known as Kamengrad (Каменград, "Stonetown") started on 28 June 2011, and was officially opened on 28 June 2014, on Vidovdan[1]. Andrićgrad is located several kilometers from Kusturica's first town, Drvengrad, in Serbia.

Overview[edit]

Main entrance of Andrićgrad

Andrićgrad is located near the Mehmed Paša Sokolović Bridge, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and stretches from the bridge up to the confluence of the Rzav River.[2] After Drvengrad (English: Woodentown), this is the second village Kusturica created from scratch. Andrićgrad is to be used as a location for Kusturica's new film Na Drini ćuprija, based on the novel The Bridge on the Drina by Nobel Prize for Literature laureate Ivo Andrić.[citation needed]
