The magnificent museum of Tito


“House of Flowers” (part of the Complex of the Museum of Yugoslav History) opened for visitors in 1982. The complex also includes the Museum of May 25 and the Old Museum. The “House of Flowers” can also not be called a mausoleum in the true sense of the word – it is actually an adapted glass garden and, as such, in an official speech of the 1980s produced a series of euphemisms that were used instead of the unwanted word “grave”.

The leadership of the Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia and the League of Communists of Yugoslavia decided that after Tito’s death he called his political doctorate “And after Tito – Tito!” And therefore it was inappropriate to call Josip Broz Tito’s last resting place a tomb or mausoleum. The name of the “house of flowers” has become generally accepted since Tito’s grave was surrounded by large flower bushes.

The “House of Flowers” exhibits part of the MIJ relay collection (total of 22,000), local relays were given by pioneers, youth, social and political organizations; the federal relay from the period after 1957, when May 25 began to be celebrated as Youth Day, and the “Tito Relay” was named “The Youth Relay”.

The desire of visitors, to find out how Josip Broz Tito was privately and how the state activities influenced his free time, influenced the setting – New permanent exhibition in the House of Flowers, the Museum of the History of Yugoslavia, which draws into the private sphere of Josip Broz Tito – “Tito personally”. The item contains 61 personal items by Josip Broz Tito and 128 relays.

The permanent exhibition of Josip Broz Tito’s personal items is divided into five thematic units – “Man with style”, “Meetings”, “Travel”, “Hedonism” and “Comrade Tito we swear to you”. They give us a picture of a statesman who, despite his political obligations, has sought to enjoy.

The memorial complex is one of the most visited destinations on the cultural map of Belgrade. It was built in 1975, on the basis of the architect Stjepan Kralj’s project, as a winter garden with Josip Broz’s rooms and workplaces in the immediate vicinity of the Residence in which he lived. It consists of three parts: central – flower garden and two parallel for use. On the opposite side of the entrance there is an uncovered terrace overlooking Belgrade. In the central part, Tito was buried in his own desire, in 1980, and then called “Florist”

Since the establishment of the Memorial Center, when the “House of Flowers” officially started to visit, and by 2012, this place, according to records kept by the authorities in the Museum of the History of Yugoslavia, visited more than 17 million people.

Professional staff is more than happy that the lack of reality at the exhibition adds to anecdotes and stories, so your tour is complete.
