The River House in Serbia

Dec 4, 2019

Category: Living

Just one glance at the aptly titled River House, and there’s absolutely no question where this little cottage gained its name. Located on the Drina River in Serbia, this home was originally built over 45 years ago.

The house is situated upon a rock in the middle of the river, and gained fame on the web just a few short years ago when National Geographic published the amazing photo seen above. Back in 1968, a small group of young boys decided that their sunbathing rock needed a comfortable place to relax, using boats and kayaks to transport boards from a nearby ruined shed to build this beauty. Over the past few decades, the house has been destroyed multiple times in floods, but just like that it gets built right back up.
