Cottage on the Drina - the most important information

Welcome to Bajina Basta! In the following text, we will present you the authentic symbol of this small town - the House on the Drina. It is located on the right bank of the river Drina, below the slopes of Mount Tara. It is a wooden house, located on an isolated rock, 2 km from the center of Bajina Basta. This interesting and popular tourist place was created in 1969, when the first house on the rock was built. Unfortunately, the river Drina flooded, demolished and carried away this house with its water levels several times. When it was renovated for the sixth time, 2 stable concrete beams were poured on the rock as a solid foundation for placing a wooden object. However, after the great flood in 2010, the Drina once again took the house off the rock. But next year, this building is being renovated and since then it has stood firmly on its pedestal and attracted a large number of tourists.
