House of Flowers is Josip Broz Tito’s resting place, the President of the Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia, and his third wife, Jovanka Broz. It resides on the grounds of the Museum of Yugoslav History in Dedinje.
It’s better known as the memorial center for former Yugoslav leader Josip Broz Tito. It consists of Tito’s tomb, a monument collection, a hunting lodge, and the residence in which Tito lived.
Flowers once surrounded the tomb until it was closed to the public after Yugoslavia’s breakup, and now only white rocks remain where the flowers used to be.
Only the tomb and the memorial museum are open to the public. They are among the most visited Belgrade and Serbia places and are above all popular on May 25, Tito’s birthday.
May 25 is also Youth Day. The memorial collection includes permanent exhibitions of the local, republic, and federal Relays of Youth, including messages Tito received, tickets and programs for the passes on, and photographs of batons’ carrying and transition.
A new permanent display focuses on Tito’s personal life and includes the former leader’s items, uniforms, souvenirs from his travels, and gifts he received.
