Drina river is formed by two smaller rivers, Piva and Tara, which merge at Šćepan field.

Its average flow is 370 m3/sec. In the lower course, the Drina deposited large amounts of sand and gravel and created many aits (around which it bifurcates), shoals, shallows, meanders and curves (“THE CURVED DRINA”, orig. “KRIVA DRINA” ). The Drina is famous for rafting, but is quite unsuitable for sailing. The river is very rich in hydropower, because it has an output of 15.3 billion kWh.
