The biggest attraction of this city is the bridge over Drina, which was completed in 1571 on the order of Mehmed Paša Sokolović, and which was described in Ivo Andrić's novel The Bridge on the Drina, for which he won the Nobel Literature Prize. Since 2014, Andrićgrad has been open for tourists. It is a tourist complex built on the idea of the director Emir Kusturica and inspired by the characters and works of Ivo Andrić. The city is built of stone and it has a mixture of epochs and styles which alternated throughout the history of this area: Byzantine style, Ottoman style, Renaissance, Classicism.
