Find out where one of the greatest scientific minds came from!
Driven by the desire to preserve the character and work of Nikola Tesla, a Memorial center was opened in Smiljan, Croatia in 2006.
The Memorial center is very well organized and consists of the newly renovated birth house of Nikola Tesla (rebuilt several times), a Serbian Orthodox church (where his father was a minister) and a multimedia center. In addition, there are numerous exhibits in the open, including an authentic looking old barn, the little brook where Tesla used to play with an exhibit on it. And there is a futuristic looking children's playground.
After Tesla's birthplace, we will continue to Plitvice Lakes for a nice walk in nature.
