tiny river house, fantasy and reality

If you dream about tiny houses, then our Drina River icon should mesmerize you. Built by local boys in the 1960s, the shelter has been lovingly maintained for 40 years. Today it’s part of Tara National Park, in Serbia.

Let’s share this Serbian river house in glamorous and less-glamorous poses. Meet the loyal owner, watch the river flood and also check Tara Mountain tourist info. Even with reality-checking, our icon remains wonderful to see.
