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

Construction of Andrićgrad, also known as Kamengrad (Каменград, "Stonetown") started on 28 June 2011, and was officially opened on 28 June 2014, with the grand opening marking the 100th anniversary of the assassination of Archduke Ferdinand by Gavrilo Princip.[1] Andrićgrad is located several kilometers from Kusturica's first town, Drvengrad, in Serbia.

Overview[edit]

Main entrance of the Andricgrad

Andrićgrad is located near the Mehmed Paša Sokolović Bridge, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and streaches from the bridge up to the confluence of 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 Bridge on the Drina novel by Nobel Prize for Literature laureate Ivo Andrić.[citation needed]
