ZAGREB, June 30 – The tourism board in the central town of Gospic is organising an event called “Tesla Power of Lights” to celebrate the 163rd anniversary of the birth of the world famous scientist and inventor Nikola Tesla.
The event will take place in Gospic’s main square on the evening of July 9, the day before Tesla’s birthday. Tesla was born on July 10, 1856 in Smiljan, near Gospic.
The event will show not only all of Tesla’s contributions to humanity but will also enable visitors to imagine the night when Tesla was born. It will include a spectacular light show and a sightseeing train that will drive around the town free of charge taking visitors to the locations connected with Tesla’s life and work. All the buildings in which Tesla lived or worked will be specially illuminated, and visitors will also be able to sit on lit-up furniture specifically designed for this occasion.
The local tourism board expects that the event will attract tourists and help further promote Gospic, the Lika region and Croatia.
