(Scroll down for video) A group of adventurers decided to build a nice house on a small rock in middle of the river and so far it has survived for 45 years, according to video uploaded to the internet.

In 1968 the group of young people went swimming in the Drina River in Serbia. They wanted a place to rest, so they found a rock in the middle of the river and placed tables on it. Eventually this became a small house that has withstood the storms for 45 years.

The small, one room house has stood the test of time, wind, water and climate. It is situated on a rock in the middle of the Drina River, near the town of Bajina Basta in Serbia and has become quite the tourist attraction.

Based on their initial planks of wood, the young people have created a wonderful one-room house. They carried all the parts and supplies they needed using boats and kayaks. The larger pieces were simply placed in the water and sent downstream. They then caught the items as they floated past the small building site.

Over the years the house has survived a little of everything, including several floods.Mobile video not loading? Click here to view
