Nikola Tesla museum – visit

It is the only museum in the world which preserves the original and personal inheritance of Nikola Tesla. It possesses several exceptionally valuable collections. Nowadays, Nikola Tesla Museum is visited by more than 70,000 visitors per year. Professional guidance through the exhibition with the presentation of museum exhibits is organized in Serbian and English. Moreover, visitors can watch a short documentary film about Nikola Tesla
After the Nikola Tesla Museum visit we will take a short ride by bus to Skadarlija, a special place in Belgrade.
Almost every city with a strong identity has its bohemian quarter. While it is getting dark, you will have the chance to see a peculiar side of this city, a street that Belgrade could not do without, a quarter that the city’s identity was built on. Approaching the street from the “upper” side, you start to realize why visiting this place is a must, why most of Belgraders consider it to be such a special place and why it has such a charming nameSkadarlija.
You can sense its cosmopolitan vibe also by looking at the street signs, showing “sister quarters” in other European cities and the inevitable Moon, a frequent motif in poems and paintings of the Romantic period. Here you will have the opportunity to enjoy traditional Serbian food and drinks, accompanied by typical Serbian music, which will help you go back in time, in these so called “kafanas”, which have been in the same place for more than 180 years….After the dinner in one of the most famous restaurants in Skadarlija we will return you back to Hotel M around 11 p.m.
