The House on the Rock

By Linda Tancs

Western Serbia enchants travelers with unforgettable experiences.  There’s medieval Mileševa monastery, known for its fresco of the White Angel.  And the stunning vistas from the Šargan Eight, a narrow gauge railway in Mokra Gora.  The horseshoe-shaped entrance to Potpećka Pećina cave is another favorite.  But it’s the little house balanced precariously on a rock in the middle of the Drina River that really has hearts aflutter.  Known as the House on the Rock, the tiny dwelling built by a group of young lads in 1968 near the town of Bajina Basta has withstood decades of floods and bad weather.  It might not be an architectural gem, but it sure is a wonder.
