Nikola Tesla Tour 2Inquire/Book
The story of Tesla Ways begins more than a century ago, when the production of electrical energy opened up a new chapter in the history of the modern world. One of the best-known museums in Belgrade is the Nikola Tesla Museum which preserves the valuable legacy of the famous inventor and visionary genius. However, the story of the great friendship between Nikola Tesla and Djordje Stanojevic which left a deep impression on the overall industrial development in Serbia, is less known. Professor Stanojevic was one of the leading scientists of the late 19th and the early 20th centuries, as astrophysicist, meteorologist and rector of the University of Belgrade. It is thanks to Djordje Stanojevic that Tesla spent a famous day in June of 1892 in Belgrade. Their friendship generated the small and impoverished nation of Serbia to follow the path of modernization by establishment of the hydroelectric plant “Pod gradom” in Uzice only four years after construction of the large plants at the Niagara Falls. 10 hydroelectric plants have been built in Serbia by Stanojevic along Tesla’s principles of poly-phase electricity, which had illuminated Serbia and are nowadays true living museums. Thanks to his tremendous powers and delightful ideas Nikola Tesla left fascinating legacy – he believed we would develop ways to see thought and that people would communicate with their thoughts, described means of tapping the sun’s energy with an antenna, suggested that it would be possible to control the weather with electrical energy, predicted machines that would make war an impossibility… and made possible groundbreaking achievements and discoveries which changed the research landscape for future generations.
“There is something within me that might be illusion as it is often case with young delighted people, but if I would be fortunate to achieve some of my ideals, it would be on the behalf of the whole of humanity. If those hopes would become fulfilled, the most exiting thought would be that it is a deed of a Serb. Long live Serbdom!…”
“The energy of a single thought could determine the movement of the Universe” Nikola Tesla
