Bijeljina Travel Guide
We know Australia loves making insanely oversized replicas of everyday objects in the hope of getting a few tourists to drive by (witness the ugly big koala and the giant slide rule as just a couple of hundreds of pretty dumb examples). But maybe it works, and the Bosnians are about to try it out for themselves.
If you travel through Bosnia, you'll learn that cabbages are important--they're healthy, nutritious and found in many kinds of local cuisine. Bosnians in the town of Bijeljina have decided to honor their favorite vegetable Australian-big-things style. Yep, they've got plans to build a giant cabbage monument. The big opening should take place during 2007--we'll be sure to bring you the first great glimpses of Bosnia's first giant cabbage. Hold the reprint on those guidebooks, because a monumental new tourist attraction is on its way!
