#About the Museum in Memory of the Great Serbian Inventor

The Nikola Tesla Museum deals with the greatest inventors in history and one of the symbols of the nation. In order to understand how much respect the Serbian nation has for him, note that the main airport of Serbia in Belgrade is also named after Nikola Tesla.

In the museum where over 70,000 people visit each year, an exhibition of Tesla's inventions and life is displayed on the first floor. On the second floor you can visit the changing exhibitions of the inventor's life and related scientific research.

Nikola Tesla himself was one of the most important inventors of all time. He was a physicist and electrical engineer who was considered the inventor of the AC system and the first inventor of radio. Tesla was born in Serbia, but the most important parts of his career were in the United States, where he emigrated, where he initially worked as assistant to Thomas Edison and later as his great competitor.


#What Was Nikola Tesla's Contribution?

Nikola Tesla was one of the greatest inventors and many see him as the greatest innovator of all time. He was the master of electricity, who in his life swore to illuminate the world. Tesla discovered many scientific principles and technological advances, including the AC system, wireless radio and torpedoes and radio-controlled boats. It was Tesla who lit the world and brought Edison's light bulb everywhere, the one who preceded Marconi with radio, and experimented with X-rays, radar, and even nuclear cracking.

The Serbian genius was a man of extremes and opposites. He had a photographic memory, he was able to remember a whole book in a moment, but was awash with obsessive fears and obsessions. At an early age he learned to turn his mental disorders and visions into learning and inventions. His ability to visualize machines and devices that work, just as if they were facing him, was a godsend and he used to invent and produce his visions.

After moving to America to apply his ideas, he worked for Edison, who says he was deceived by Tesla. He had already invented the alternating current, and put it against Edison's direct current, a champion of the American inventors. When Edison claimed that AC power was dangerous to humans, Tesla was not afraid to show reporters how the current passed through his own body and he was safe and sound. Tesla overcame Edison by deploying his electric grid and implementing an idea he had conceived as a child - he created electricity from the water power of Niagara Falls. He also invented the gas-filled Tesla tubes, which were used for lighting, enabling the invention of the television, by developing a Tesla coil to create high electrical tensions, and began setting up a "global wireless" plants, an innovative broadcasting system. But the collapse of the American stock market knocked him down and the company he built, and a decade later he died forgotten and frustrated.

Oddly enough, since Tesla's death, it is was though he never existed. It was only in recent years that a recognize of the greatness of the genius began, and now his name is among the list of inventors such as Einstein, Edison, Bell and Marconi. Even those who do not rank him as the greatest inventor in history agree that he was probably a smart, brilliant and multidisciplinary 20th century genius.

Village Museum
#About the Museum

Normal village life is of great historical importance in Romania. Each area in Romania has different homes and buildings that characterize it. The Ethnographic Museum in front of you displays hundreds of village homes from different areas in the country.

Farmer homes, wooden entrances, workshops, windmills and more, here the small details are very accurate. You can see houses with straw roofs, with piles of hay, wine barrels, and more. The details are even in the kitchen utensils, cooking ovens, agricultural carriages, and even the authentic clothes.

The Village Museum (Muzeul Satului) is located at the edge of King Michael I Park, and shows visitors the life in a typical Romanian village. It was inaugurated on May 10th, 1936 in the presence of King Carol II. It opened to the public about a week later. The plans for the museum were conducted by the author, playwright, and producer, Victor Ion Popa. Funding for the building came from the Royal Cultural Foundation.

Today the museum is one of the main tourist attractions in Bucharest. The size of the museum is about 100,000 square meters, and it includes 272 original buildings, and gives visitors a chance to see and learn about the lifestyle and their structures.

In order to build the museum, the houses were taken apart piece by piece, brought to Bucharest by trains, carriages, or boats, and reconstructed in the museum.

The most ancient building here was built in the 17th century, and the newest one is from the 19th century. There is a sort of community in the museum, and all their daily needs are met. Even their clothes are hand sown.

#About the Museum Dedicated to the World of aviation

The Museum of Aviation, with its impressive and futuristic look, is close to the airport, a 10-minute walk away and less than a kilometer.

#About National Museum of Romanian History

About 50,000 valuable items from Romanian history are displayed here, one of the most important museums in Romania.

The museum has sat in the old post office building since 1909, where there is also the Philatelic Museum. The museum has about 41 rooms that spread across 8,000 square meters. There are many different exhibits here having to do with the development of Romania.

You can see many fascinating items here, starting with a lot of gold from the time of the Romanian kings, bedazzled crowns, royal jewelry and swords that belonged to the nobility.

In 1864 more historical items were donated by general Nichlae Mavros. And so the museum received an edge, and began its journey as a museum for antiques and science of nature. Many cultural figures got on board to continue the enriching and preservation of the museum. In 1970 the city decided to make the museum the National Museum of Romanian History, and in 1972 it was reopened to visitors.

Part of the museum is dedicated to a permanent exhibit having to do with the Holocaust of the Bucharest Jewish community.

Teatrul Evreiesc de Stat
State Jewish Theater
#Aboute Romania's Jewish Theater

The State Jewish Theater (Teatrul Evreiesc de Stat) is a relic from the past, but is a living and breathing establishment, that puts up shows and performances to this very day in Yiddish, and attracts a rather large crowd from the city's Jewish community. The Bucharest State Jewish Theater was established in 1948, and is a direct continuation of a long tradition of Yiddish theaters.

The roots of the Bucharest Jewish community begin somewhere in the 16th century. This community knew harsh realities throughout the years. The height of cruelty was the hunting by the Nazis in World War II, as well as tough rules set by Communist rulers. And with that, to this day there are a few thousand Jewish families still living in the city, who continue to seek culture and entertainment.

The theater is located next to the Jewish Museum of Bucharest. It is worth a chance to see a show here. Those who don't speak Yiddish, there are translated options with headphones that are given to those interested.


#History of the State Jewish Theater

The State Jewish Theater of Bucharest has been operating since 1948, however, its roots are much deeper than that. It can be said that the theater represents a tradition of more than 100 years of Yiddish theater in Romania, since the evolvement of the theater troop by Abraham Goldfaden in Laşi.

In 1944, after the fall of the Militant-Fascist rule of Antonescu, Yiddish performances were once again allowed in Romania. A year later, in 1945, the first Yiddish troop was established, called Ikuf Theater. The troop began performing in an old building that used to host another theater troop (Teatru Evreiesc Baraşeum).

Three years later, in 1948, the Communist rule ordered all private cultural establishment to close, including theaters. This is when, with the Jewish Democratic Committee (which enjoyed the perks of the government) the theatre was established.

#About the Museum for Weapons

The National Military Museum in Bucharest displays the development of weapons and war materials, starting from 5,000 AD, until today. In the museum there are 5 floors and courtyards, full of tanks, cannons, airplanes, and other heavy weapons. The path for visitors goes in chronological order - ancient times, with sharpened stones made by cavemen found in Romania.

At the airport terminal you can see space equipment, and even a spaceship that was flown by a Communist Romanian astronaut. There are also early planes made of wood, designed by Romanian engineers, and other flight equipment.

Beyond the maintenance of the exhibits, the harshest criticism about this place is the fact that there is no information in English.

#About the Museum Named Poland

The POLIN Museum of the History of Polish Jews (Muzeum Historii Żydów Polskich), also known as the Polish Museum, is a museum that tells the history of the Jews in Poland, from the first immigration to Poland, to present day.

The museum was built in what was the only area in the former Jewish Quarter that was left without construction. Here, in the past, the Warsaw Ghetto was situated, right at the site where the Judenrat headquarters stood during the war. It is right next to Anielewicz Street and opposite the monument of the sculptor Nathan Rapaport, in memory of the heroes of the Warsaw Ghetto.

Even if the museum dedicates a significant part to the Holocaust, it also deals quite a bit with other periods in the history of the connection between the Jews and Poland. In fact, the museum tells about the history of Polish Jewry, starting in the 13th century, and does it right through innovative technology that creates interest.

Although it has an interactive part, which offers activities with computer screens, the museum is not really intended for young children.

Museum of Medieval Torture Instruments
#About the Museum with the Torture Tools from the Middle Ages

The Museum of Medieval Torture Instruments is located in the middle of the Old City of Prague and displays a variety of torture tools, mostly used by the royal house and the catholic church of the Middle Ages. Those who love horror movies, will probably love this place.

In the museum, located in a dark and mysterious basement, what empowers the reluctant experience, the museum displays about 100 torture tools, used by Catholic examiners to identify traitors and criminals and those who had sinned against the Church or committed heresy.

For everything to be clear, there are dozens of photos, of the different kinds of torture practiced, and of the cruel methods of executions. They explain in detail how the equipment shown here was used to inflict suffering on interrogees and defendants, until they confessed or passed away.

There are also almost-human wax figures, which illustrate the torture in a pathetic and horrifying way. The sound effects that resonate throughout the basement do not make it difficult to imagine the suffering that the people here knew. Sad, and filling us with joy that this age has passed.



#What Can Be Seen at the Museum?

Among the terrible torture tools displayed in the two-floor museum, are items like body stretching, head pressing tools, equipment for cutting off organs, equipment that stings and stabs nails, scratches and removes the skin and more. The amount of imagination required to invent such cruel instruments and the morbid head of their planners evokes sad thoughts about faith and religion and what is between them.



#Tips

There is a combine ticket for both museums - the wax and the torture, located very close to one another.

There are also family tickets available for a discount, and cheaper tickets for children, students, and retirees.
