Mehmed-Pasha Sokolovic Bridge | Visegrad, Bosnia and Herzegovina

The Bridge On The Drina


Stretching over the waters of the Drina River in eastern Bosnia, the sixteenth-century Mehmed-Pasha Sokolovic Bridge is a famous Balkan icon. Designed by Sinan (1489–1588), who is considered by many to have been the finest architect of the Ottoman Empire, the bridge is one of nine completed by him—of which six survive. The subject of Ivo Andric’s 1945 Nobel Prize-winning book The Bridge on the Drina, the Mehmed-Pasha Sokolovic Bridge retains much of its original fabric, although it was repaired several times in the sixteenth, nineteenth, and twentieth centuries. Three of its 11 arches were destroyed in World War I, while five were damaged in World War II. All were subsequently restored.

True, his brother, Makarije Sokolović [your language: Sokollu Makarije] was very important for Serb Orthodox Church. His brother Mehmed hepled him [Makarije] to restore Pećka patrijaršija. I don't remember year.
