The Day of Celebrating the Day of Youth – May 25th is one of the most visited in the Museum of Yugoslavia, when the complex approaches an average of 2,500 people, mainly from the territory of former Yugoslavia. This year, the entrance will be free from 10 to 20 hours, and the audience can visit the House of Flowers (the setting of Figures Remembrance) and the Old Museum (open work at the permanent exhibition at the stage of the Museum Laboratory).

In the House of Flowers, a permanent open program will also be organized (from 10 am to 2 pm), during which curators will show to the audience how in practice work with relays looks like.

On Saturday, May 25, the Museum of Yugoslavia organizes a special tour of the Youth Day – from Stadion to the Museum. The gathering of the audience is at 17 o’clock in the parking lot at the main hall of the Partizan stadium. The walk starts at the stadium where participants will hear the celebration of the Youth Day looking at the central lodge from where Tito followed the flight; then proceed to the May 25th Museum, the first dedicated museum built in Belgrade, which served to preserve and exhibit the gifts Tito received during his lifetime.

The tour ends at the House of Flowers, where the participants will be able to see the relays preserved in the Museum of Yugoslavia today and to find out why the Relay has remained for some time a metaphor of the Yugoslavian, while for others it is one of the most effective tools in the construction of Tito’s cult.
