Mećavnik Woodentown

Drvengrad, meaning Wooden Town, also known as Küstendorf and Mećavnik, is a traditional village that the Serbian film director Emir Kusturica built for his film Life is a Miracle.

It is located in the Zlatibor District near the city of Uzice, two hundred kilometers southwest of Serbia's capital, Belgrade. Drvengrad is also known as Küstendorf, as a word play on German "dorf" (village) and Kusturica's nickname, "Kusta". Kusturica has also been known to call it Mećavnik, which is the name of the neighbouring village.

Drvengrad has a library, named the Ivo Andrić Library; an artist gallery named Macola in honor of sculptor Dragan Jovićević (it was previously known as Anika, after a character from Ivo Andrić's prose); Cinema Stanley Kubrik; a main house which houses a cinema-hall in the cellar, a living room, a guest room, a closed yard, a swimming pool, a gymnasium, a sauna and private rooms for the Kusturica family; a sports hall; a restaurant; a cake shop, as well as a souvenir shop; and finally, a Church dedicated to St. Sava.
