The Crazy Serbian House In The Middle Of A River

This absolute legend, Milija Mandić, affectionately known as ‘Fungus’ by his friends built this house in the late 60’s and despite numerous flood and weather related calamities it’s still looking weird and cool today.

Sick Chirpse has been covering a lot of ghost towns and bizarre places people live recently, so here’s a completely mental house that a Serbian guy constructed in the middle of the Drina River. The Drina is a tributory of the Sava and is pretty dramatic with vast gorges and beautiful scenery. This absolute legend, Milija Mandić, affectionately known as ‘Fungus’ by his friends built the house in the late 60’s and despite numerous flood and weather related calamities it’s still looking weird and cool today.

The dwelling is in essence, quite a simple wooden hut but its precarious location gives it an element of the surreal. It kind of reminds me of the home-made houses in Christiania, a squatted ex- military base in Copenhagen with roughly 1000 citizens where you can buy weed openly from kiosks in the street (More on smoking weed and looking at weird houses in Christiania next week).

Milija and his friends reach the island retreat by kayak or boat and obviously have a sick time chilling out and watching the world go by drinking Rakia.

After having to rebuild the house for like the ninth time, Milija modified the roof and two of the sides so during floods the Drina can flow through the house and not totally wash it away again…

Wise words Mr Mandić. I would absolutely love to hang in this house, anyone up for a kayaking trip to the Drina this summer?
