A Serbian village, worn out by floods and misfortune, has erected statue of Rocky Balboa in the hopes of a turn in luck.
Zitiste, about 60 kilometers (35 miles) north of Belgrade, late Saturday unveiled a huge monument to actor Sylvester Stallone's film character in the village square to attract tourists and show a new face to the world.
The monument is 3 meters (10 feet) high and made of concrete by a Croatian artist.
The Rocky statue was unveiled as part of a music and entertainment festival in the village which has repeatedly suffered flooding and landslides in recent years, gaining a disaster-prone reputation.
