The Drina River turns into a giant pile of floating garbage
The Drina River in Bosnia-Herzegovina, known for its stunning natural beauty, has turned into a giant pile of floating garbage.
Tons of plastic bottles, rusted barrels, used tires, household appliances, wood and other debris have piled up in the river, which meanders through forested hills.
Environmentalists are warning that around 10,000 cubic meters of waste have accumulated behind a barrier created in Drina in recent days.
Dejan Furtula, representative of the environmental group Eko Centar Višegrad, said that the huge flow of waste is not stopping, despite the torrential rains and floods.
The Drina River flows 346 kilometers from the northwest mountain of Montenegro through Serbia and Bosnia. Many of its branches are known for their emerald color and breathtaking scenery.
