Hamam ( Turkish bath) in Višegrad spa
It is located close to the hotel „Vilina Vlas“. The story of the opening of this bath is very interesting. The Turkish bath was opened in the year of construction of the famous Bridge on the Drina, in 1575. The stones used for the construction of the bridge were brought from quarries in the area of today’s Višegrad Spa. During the excavation of stones, the workers had discovered the spring of mineral water, and also that the wounds they got during the work were healing much quicker than usual. This healing characteristic was considered to come from the mineral water where they took baths, and then it was decided to construct baths in the place. The baths are today still in use, and can be rented for an hour. The reservations for the baths can be taken at the Hotel „Vilina Vlas“.
The church of St. Jovan
It is located in Višegrad Spa, 1 km from the hotel “Vilina Vlas“. In the past the church was entirely built of wood. The shape was of the single-nave basilica and without frescoes. The area itself where the church is located is also very interesting. We speak of the flat piece of land in hilly area, surrounded with big pine forest. The space around the church is made to be a picnic area (with benches and tables, drinking water and toilet), and mainly people from Višegrad come here, but also the guests that are staying at Visegrad Spa.
