The Museum of Yugoslavia in Belgrade
Regardless of the generation that you belong, the term „former Yugoslavia“, due to the numerous specificities, facts and legends surrounding it, still stirs great interest.
The existence of a one single institution dedicated exclusively to the old Yugoslavia, its lifelong president Josip Broz Tito, as well as numerous "relics" of that time covering the period until the 1990s is not only a benefit, but also a need for generations who, unfortunately or fortunately, did not have the opportunity to live at that time and consequently were unable to get acquainted with all the specificities.
Yet there are so many specificities! Starting from the political system, communist ideology, the polarized situation in the world, the cult of person, the socialist economy, all the way to the daily routines of ordinary "comrades" and working classes. All this is the subject of study and collection of the institution "Museum of the History of Yugoslavia".
The Museum of the History of Yugoslavia was created by merging the Memorial Center "Josip Broz Tito" (the famous "House of Flowers") and the Museum of the Revolution of the Peoples and Nationalities of Yugoslavia. The museum features over 200,000 exhibits, particularly focusing on the life and work of Josip Broz Tito.
Apart from this incredibly impressive collection, which in a unique way evokes the golden age, at least according to some, the whole space is also an ideal destination to relax and take a light stroll. The Museum of the History of Yugoslavia also consists of a large park with some fantastic and very valuable sculptures by the most famous sculptors of that time. Vladeta Petrić, Bodnarov, Kršinić and the famous Augustinčić are just some of them, to name a few.
This museum is a kind of end-destination for many modern day pilgrims who gather here twice a year. These are numerous nostalgics from the former SFRY who visit this place on May 25 for Youth Day, i.e. the birthday of Josip Broz Tito, but also on May 4, the day of the death of the eternal president of the SFRY. Then, indeed, many "comrades" from Vardar river to Triglav mountain remember how everything used to be simpler in the past and how life was much more peaceful and more comfortable.
Whether you belong to the group of "Yugoslav nostalgics", or simply want to find out more about the history of the second half of the twentieth century in a fun and entertaining way, the Museum of Yugoslav History is a place you simply have to visit while you are in Belgrade.
The museum is located in Dedinje area and is very easy to reach from all parts of the city.
