A Serbian monument to plums.
It’s not very common for a fruit to get its own monument. But residents of Blace, a small town in Serbia, are so thankful to plums that in 2012, the town erected a statue in their honor.
The town unveiled Spomenik Šljivi, “Monument to Plum” by Dragan Drobnjak, during their annual “Plum Day” festival. Many residents of the Toplica region work with plums, making jam, juice, compote, or Rakija fruit brandy, the most popular alcoholic drink in Serbia. Along with the statue, the festival every year gathers plum lovers to the area, with concerts, a fair, and many educational lectures about fruit growing.

The monument is located in the town center park, on Kralja Petra I Karađorđevića street.
