This unusual house was built by local kids in the middle of the Serb Drina River about forty-five years ago. The main purpose of the construction was to create a secluded resting spot. And they succeeded at this.
The cabin was built on a rock in the middle of the river, nearby a small Serbian town Bajna Basta. Originally there were just a couple of boards, which made it easier to sunbathe, but then was decided to build a house. The fluctuations of the water level destroyed the house several times, but it always got rebuilt. Until a few months ago no one knew about this house, except local people and a bunch of tourists. Everything changed when a photo of this house by Irene Becker was published in the National Geographic Magazine. Hundreds of tourists immediately got interested in visiting this place.
