NOVI SAD, Serbia (AP) Savo Duvnjak looked around the room, lifted a metal baseball bat and wrecked everything in sight bed, table, shelves, chair until there was nothing left to wreck.
This isn't a criminal onslaught. It's the Rage Room.
And it's smashing its way to success in Serbia one angry visitor at a time.
The Rage Room opened in the northern Serbian city of Novi Sad in October. Since then, it's drawn a flurry of attention in the Balkan country where two decades of war, political crisis and economic hardship have driven many over the edge.
The room was inspired by a similar "Anger Room" in Dallas. Serbia's version was set up by two teens who saw the U.S. original online and saw it as a way to earn pocket money.
