The statue of Rocky Balboa / Statua Roki Balboa
Until yesterday I never knew about a village with the name of Zitiste, a village in Vojvodina, a region in Serbia. It is not far from the Serbian-Romanian border and before 1914 it was part of the Austrian-Hungarian empire. I will not bother you with more historical facts , but I will save you for now.
Have you ever heard of Rocky ? Yes of course you did ! Now guess what? In the village of Zitiste they have a statue for Rocky, the famous Hollywood star Silvester Stallone. I could not believe my eyes , but yes it is indeed.
I can not verify the story 100 % , but it seems somebody influential in the village wanted to get more attention to his village Zitiste. Mission succeeded according to me 🙂
