    Nikola Tesla was born in 1856 in Smiljan, Croatia today, and although it's considered Serbian is much honored in the country, which prides itself on your inventor, physicist and engineer. Tesla is famous for contributions to the design of alternating current electricity system and inventions that catch the eye. He advocated the development of renewable fuels and researched methods of generating energy by ground and by air, alternatives that could replace fossil fuel consumption and impact. Tesla also supported improvements in the quality of human life without the goal of creating wealth and maybe that's why, in spite of their contributions to society, he died poor. The bronze statue is on the street that also has your name.

Where to stay in Zagreb

Lodging in Croatia's capital Zagreb maintains a high standard, with many centrally located hotels offering significant weekend discounts on their finest rooms. Hostels remain the most affordable option for budget-minded travelers visiting for a day or two, providing small but neat rooms only steps away from the city's most popular bars, clubs, and restaurants. For something a bit quieter, look for self-catering apartments and guesthouses in the city's residential neighborhoods, where you can park for free and get a good night's sleep.
