At least there are no problems with the neighbors! The house that has perched  on a rock in the middle of a river for 40 years

For 45 years this bizarre little house has  survived everything that nature can throw at it.

Balancing on a rock in the middle of the  Drina River in Serbia, the house has been pounded by floods and high winds – yet  stood strong.

The  structure is located near the town of Bajina Basta, Serbia, and has become a  well-known attraction for visitors to the area.

The idea for it came in 1968 when a group of  young swimmers out having a splash in the river needed a place to  rest.

They found the rock and started using it  regularly. Then as time went by, they wanted a more comfortable place to rest  and began to place boards to lay on on top of the rock.

As they wanted shelter from the sun, they  began to build up, and the idea developed.

The following year, one of the swimmers  turned the rough idea into an actual construction project of this one-room  home.

The parts and supplies were transported by  boat and kayak, and the larger pieces were simply placed in the water upstream,  and captured as they floated down past the building location.

The Drina  River website calls it the House on  the Drina River Island and describes the home as ‘a unique oasis of nature, [an escape] from the constraints of civilization’.
