On Friday, July 10, Croatia and the world will mark the 164th anniversary of the birth of one of the world’s greatest minds, Nikola Tesla, and a real spectacle is being prepared in his hometown of Gospić this weekend.
For three days in a row – on Friday, Saturday and Sunday – July 10-12 – “Tesla power of Lights” will be held on the main town square after dark in Gospić.
From 9 p.m., a spectacle of light will show not only all of Tesla’s merits to humanity, but also enable visitors to imagine that night back in 1856, when Tesla was born in the small village of Smiljan near Gospić.
As part of the lighting spectacle, visitors will be able to see a laser show, extraordinary light effects that will spread the sky all the way to Smiljan, and all the buildings in which Tesla lived or worked will be specially lit in the evening. Also, for the youngest ones, an Interactive panel will be set up on the square, with the help of which children will laser paint the devices in the children’s park.
