The Museum of Yugoslav History

Well worth the trip is the Museum of Yugoslav History, located around 1.5km south of the centre on Botićeva 6. The centrepiece of the complex is the House of Flowers, designed in 1975 as Tito’s winter garden and now housing the former president’s tomb. The adjoining museum holds a wealth of exhibits, including gifts presented to Tito by foreign dignitaries, and thousands of batons used in the annual “relay of youth” which took place on 25 May each year to celebrate Tito’s birthday.
