Remarkable River Rock Home on an Ultra-Small Foundation

It looks like something straight out of a Photoshop contest – an impossibly small-footprint residence on a tiny jagged rock jutting out from the middle of a river, yet it is entirely real.

This house has survived its its precarious semi-cantilevered position for nearly half a century, withstanding the weather of the Drina River in Serbia and attracting attention from locals and tourists alike.

What started as a resting place for tired swimmers evolved into a whole (albeit small) home – to get materials or people to it, the easiest route is simply to come in upriver rather than fighting the running water.
