Meet the Slovak Batman

The Slovak town of Dunajska Streda has its own local superhero, Zoltan Kohari. Zoltan is a 26-year-old guy living in a derelict house without heat, water and electricity. He wanted to make a difference in his hometown so he equipped himself with an all-leather Batman suit and some homemade gadgets and started patrolling the streets.

Although he doesn’t fight criminals, he waters people’s plants, trims various lawns, helps to clean up the local area by picking up trash and he also calls the police whenever he sees anything suspicious in the neighborhood. Local dwellers like Zoltan and sometimes give him food in return for his efforts.
