“Josip Broz Tito Mausoleum n Belgrade”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 13, 2014

we went to see the “Flower House” and Tito’s tomb. The complex of the buildings used by Tito during his life is now his resting place. There are lots of angry people who think that Tito’s resting place should move from Belgrade to Croatia as he was Croatian. His tomb is very simple, plain white marble with his name and dates of birth and death engraved in gold. Sceptics are commenting on the absence of the red star, a symbol of communism, convinced that he was a Mason, although no one proved this yet. His tomb is positioned so that he can see the biggest working Church in Europe, St Sava. I am sure Tito didn’t want a view over a church especially when proclaiming that “Religion is the opium of the people” and went on to close down so many Orthodox churches, prosecuting priests and abolishing all religious gatherings.There is a huge collection of batons which were used on mass relay races throughout Yugoslavia when all sorts of people would run – housewives, pioneers, workers, peasants, reformed political dissidents – and at the end present their batons to Tito at the Partisan Stadium on his birthday, 25th May. There would be a huge ceremony and half the schools and Universities in the country were closed.

insight into a life of very powerful man and the gifts he recieved from all over the world. Small museum hosts trophies from the races organized in his name. Every single one is interesting and different.

“You need to have some history”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2014

I have roots in ex Yugoslavia, but I haven't lived there for a long time. I believe that you need to have roots in Yu to really appreciate this museum. Much more could have been done to increase the experience for the people without roots in that society.

“Worth a visit if interested in history”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2014

Was in two minds about visiting - but a pleasant place and nicely done.

Interesting to see all the batons on the walls (from the relays!) and very worth it from a historical aspect - irrespective of political views.
