Josip Broz Tito, the leader of the Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia and his wife Jovanka are buried here. This is an interesting location in many ways – it is a great place to learn about the fascinating history persona that was Tito. It is also an aesthetically beautiful location – its alternative name, the House of Flowers comes from the fact that the tomb used to be surrounded by many flowers – it was in fact constructed as a glass garden in which Tito’s gravesite is housed – but after it had been closed to the public, the flowers were replaced by white rocks.
There is an exhibition where visitors can learn many interesting details about Tito’s life and history. Tito has always been a disputed historic figure, but regardless of your views on him the House of Flowers is an immensely interesting place to visit and an opportunity to learn something new and integral to Serbian history.
