Now that’s what i call riverfront property!

The Drina River runs the border between Bosnia Harzegovina and Serbia.  The Drina is the main kayaking and rafting attraction of the Balkans.

When you go on a river trip, you expect to see beautiful pastoral countryside. What you don’t expect to see is an oddly placed house in the middle of the river!

Is anyone home?

It doesn’t appear that anyone lives in the Drina River House.  It would make it kinda tough to get to the grocery store. But that doesn’t answer the question who built it and why?

Why Build a River House in the first place?

The house has stood for over 40 years, surviving severe weather conditions, and regular flooding of the river.

It was built in 1968 when a small group was looking for a place to sunbathe. it soon became clear that the rock on which the house sits would make the perfect spot for a small dwelling.

The one bedroom structure has since become a major draw to tourists.

The next time you’re on vacation, think about visiting the River House. But make sure you’re not there during flood season.
