The history of Ada Bojana
According to legend, Ada Bojana was created in the 17th or 19th century after a storm. It is believed that a ship ran aground during a storm, and over the years, the two nearby islands gradually became a bank, then an island due to the deposition of river sediments. Thus, the island divided the river Bojana into two parts. During the Cold War, the island was a military zone, and even today some parts of it are completely untouched.
