[ From the Media ]

None less than filmmaker Emir Kusturica has received the 2005 Philippe Rotthier European Architecture Award for his reconstruction of a traditional village on the Bosnian-Serbian border near Visegrad. Built for his most recent film "Life is a miracle", the village was christened "Küstendorf" (strangely, German for "coastal village"). More information, as well as pictures of the village, handshakees of the likes of Kostunica and Karadjordjevic, and a sharply dressed elder cultural attache of the Belgian embassy, see this and this website.
