    by Odiseya Written Feb 6, 2016

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Serbian Orthodox Church or temple in Andrićgrad is pride of whole town. It is real architecture gem.

    The church is 19 meters high with 26 meters length and 16 meters width. Its walls is 50 meters width that saves energy.
    Its facade is covered with a thousand square meters of special white stone call travertine from quarry on the Turkish-Syrian border. Refractory bricks built around doors and windows was imported from Greece and is currently used for the reconstruction of the Hilandar Monastery on Mount Athos.
    Windows have a special glass that absorb negative UV radiation so that your stay in the temple make more comfortable.
    The copper for its dome is prepared in rolling mill in Sevoyno specially for this church.

    It is seen from three side from main road Visegrad-Ustipraca.

Visegrad Warnings and Dangers

  • Odiseya's Profile Photo

    Road on Sjemec

    by Odiseya Written Aug 12, 2015

    Sjemec mountain and its road used too be only road between Rogatica and Višegrad. It is located east of the river Drina. The highest peak is located at 1497 meters altitude above sea level.

    There is pass (1192 m) over which the regional road between Rogatica and Visegrad. Those serpentine road are very narrow and steep. It not so bad when you go uphill but be careful when you go downhill.

Visegrad Tourist Traps

    Bus station

    by Odiseya Written Aug 12, 2015

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Even you will find and review here (it is actually Zvornik) currently (2015) still no officially bus station in Višegrad. That why I wrote here not in warning section.
    It used too be next to train station. I ask locals and in touristic office.

    Unique Suggestions: This is major touristic destination and on main road between Sarajevo and Belgrade and you will have opportunity to travel to and from Višegrad by bus of course. There are several bus stops within town depend you wont to travel and all information you can get in touristic information or ask locals. I will wrote about it in transportation section.

    Fun Alternatives: Still can use bus, but also and car and even boat because town is on two river.
