The Drina (Serbian: Дрина) is a river flowing for the most part between Serbia and BiH, and is the largest karst river in the Dinaric Alps which belongs to the Danube river watershed. 

 

 

It is a 346 km long tributary of the Sava River, and it forms most of the border between BiH and Serbia.

 

 

Its name is derived from the Latin name of the river (Latin: Drinus) which in turn is derived from Greek (Ancient Greek: 'Dreinos'). The Drina is formed by the confluence of the Tara and the Piva rivers, both of which flow from Montenegro and converge on the border of BiH, at Hum and Šcepan Polje villages.

  

Lenght & Navigation 

The total length of the Tara river is 144 kilometers, of which 110 km are in Montenegro, while the final 34 kilometers are in Bosnia and Herzegovina along which form the border between the two countries in several places.

 

 

The Drina flows through Bosnia and Herzegovina northward for 346 kilometers, of which 206 kilometers (128 mi) is along the border of Bosnia and Herzegovina and Serbia, and finally spills out into the Sava river near Bosanska Raca village in northeastern Bosnia and Herzegovina. Measured from the source of the Tara, its longer headwater, the Drina is 487 kilometers (303 mi) long. 

 

 

The river is not navigable; however, together with the Tara it represents the main kayaking and rafting attraction in Bosnia and Herzegovina and Montenegro, indeed whole Balkans.
