    In/On the river

    Hello,

    Could you please tell me what is the difference between?:

    In the river

    On the river


    If I say: There is an imitation of Lady Liberty on the Sena river

    Would it be well expressed?

    Thank you for your help

    "In the river" means in the water of the river. "On the river" generally means in a boat or similar on the surface of the water. Do you mean that the statue is on the banks of the river?
