Nice quiz! More like this would be great. Two small things: It should be Melania (with an "a") and it would be good to allow just "Rasputin" as the answer rather than requiring his first name (which the other answers don't).

Kafka nije Sloven. Za Djokovića može da piše teniser sa najviše grand slamova. War and Peace treba da piše.
