The Bridge on the Drina (Na Drini ćuprija), sometimes restyled as The Bridge Over the Drina, is a novel by writer Ivo Andrić. Andrić wrote the novel while living quietly in Belgrade during World War II, publishing it in 1945. Andrić was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature for his entire literary work (of which this novel is best known) in 1961.

The Bridge on the Drina revolves around the town of Višegrad in Bosnia and Herzegovina and the Mehmed Paša Sokolović Bridge over the Drina river. The story spans about four centuries during the Ottoman and subsequently Austro-Hungarian administrations of the region and describes the lives, destinies and relations of the local inhabitants, with a particular focus on Muslims and Orthodox Christians living in Bosnia and Herzegovina

Here is the view on bridge from Andrićgrad (meaning "Andrić's town") in Višegrad, Republika Srpska, Bosnia and Herzegovina, dedicated Ivo Andrić.

Construction of Andrićgrad, also known as Kamengrad (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.
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. After Drvengrad (Woodentown) this is the second village Kusturica created from scratch. Andrićgrad is to be used as a filming location for the Emir's new film Na Drini ćuprija, based on The Bridge on the Drina.
