History, when presented well, cannot be boring. No matter how fast you walk through life and seek new information or achievements, stop for a moment. To know where you are going, first master where someone had been long before you were. If you want to understand a nation, it is important to get to know it. Not over a cup of coffee or a nice lunch. The return to the past will always give more answers than the present. Whether you live in Belgrade or visit it as a tourist, these are the places where you will get many answers with a ticket.

The Museum of Nikola Tesla in Vracar records the largest number of visitors from all over the world. Coming to the capital of Serbia without going to the museum, the only one on Earth that keeps personal items and part of incredible scientific material, simply does not count. Nikola Tesla continues to impress through this building. And it has been so since 1955, when the country's first technical museum officially opened.

It took fifteen years for the reconstruction to be completed. In June 2018, on Vidovdan, it was completely clear - it was worth waiting. The National Museum is a cradle of history and culture of Serbia. The guard of over 400,000 objects, like no one else, shows the Serbs as people, what they lived through, what they went through. Exhibits from the prehistoric age, archaeological, artistic and numismatic objects are the regular exhibition. The unique temple of the entire Balkans constantly impresses, inspires and educates.

Whether Tito was the best political choice or the worst option is an issue that even today does not have an unanimous answer. The residents of the former SFRY, looking for a retrospective, regularly come to the Museum of Yugoslavia. Especially on the day of Tito's death, 4th May. From the first days in public to the last, he was a controversial person. On one occasion, he said he did not know what marketing was, but he was convinced that it was "a damn good thing". With or without knowledge, he always knew how to draw attention. A museum devoted to his reign is an address with a rich collection of symbols of communism. If you are among the crowd lamenting over the past times - straight to Dedinje.
