The trilemma whether Vranje was established in the age of Thracians and lllyrians (Romans), Byzantium (Greeks) or Slavs, who used to inhabit this area in the 6th and 7th century, is in the shade of the comprehension that, nine centuries ago, in 1093, in work “Aleksijada”, which is dedicated to her father Aleksej, a Greek of imperial origin, Ana Komnina, mentioned Vranje.
Cemane, as we call the violin here, and Goc (the type of big drum) remind us of Mitke and Kostana, writer Bora Stankovic, the hammam from the 17th century, Turkish girl Aisha who – choosing between the forbidden love with a Serbian guy, Stojan, and the death by her father’s hand – chose death!
Today, in memory of them, the White Bridge bridges the Vranjska river and serves the people.
