It all began more than 20 years ago when a kind-hearted widower Stjepan Vokic found the female stork badly injured by hunters. Vokic decided to give her a second chance at life by adopting and taking care of her. On the rooftop of the man’s house, Melana and Klepetan’s love blossomed. At first, it seemed that their relationship was doomed because Melana was unable to migrate with her mate at the end of summer. Nevertheless, their love persisted. Each year Klepeton leaves Melana to the Vokic’s care and migrates to South Africa, flying back home to his love every March.

Scroll down to see this peculiar relationship for yourself and check out the story we wrote about them a few years ago.
