Public Penises of Eastern Europe
When someone does erect a nude male statue, there's usually a public outcry. This statue of a nude Roman Emperor Trajan, one of the founders of Romania, placed on the steps of the National Museum of Romanian History in Bucharest, has caused jeers of derision.
Both for his nudity and for the fact that he's holding a wolf with a scarf (it's actually the Capitoline Wolf, who fed Romulus and Remus, attached to the Dacian Dragon).
When a nude statue of Prometheus the Fire-Bringer was erected in the Park of the Heroes of Macedonia in Skopje, public outcry forced Macedonian officials to give the god golden underwear.
But there is still beefcake to be found, often in the most unexpected places.
More after the break.
Sofia, Bulgaria has some fine old monuments, including this exceptionally well-endowed Apollo.
Every year, the town of Košice, Slovakia, near the Hungarian border, holds an International Peace Marathon. This nude bronze runner commemorates the event.
The Partisan Memorial in Ljubljana, Slovenia is not nude, but he has an impressive torso and a look of rugged defiance.
That leaves Serbia, Croatia, and Kosovo.
Maybe a beefcake tour of Eastern Europe would be a good idea after all.
