Happy Name Day Nikola Tesla!

''I consider it to be my duty, as a son of my country, to help the city of Zagreb in any way with an advice or act - said in this building Nikola Tesla, May 24th, 1892. when he proposed to the city council a construction of the central power station of alternating current.''

This memorial was put next to the entrance of the city council in honor of this great men - Nikola Tesla - to whom owe so much! He was born in Smiljan village near the city of Gospić in Croatia. Later on in his life he lived and worked in USA with Tomas Edison. There are still lots of controversies considering all their inventions and the truth who exactly invented what. As today is Saint Nicholas Day I wish Nikola Tesla a happy Name Day!
