The most famous party on the water
At the end of the 19th and the beginning of the 20th century, the river Drina was sovereign, rafts that were wiped out by the waves of the deserted river Drina on their rafts every day. They caused admiration with their rafting skill, boldness and durability. The centuries-old rafting with Drina was interrupted by the construction of a hydroelectric power plant, and the famous rafters had to leave their river and their occupation.
