The Croatian region of Lika has given the world a genius… Nikola Tesla…

Lika is a traditional region of Croatia proper, roughly bound by the Velebit mountain from the southwest and the Plješevica mountain from the northeast. Major towns include Gospić, Otočac, and Gračac, most of which are located in the karst poljes of the rivers of Lika, Gacka and others. The Plitvice Lakes National Park is also in Lika. Around 50,000 people live in the region today.

In this video you can learn more about Lika, see Tesla’s birth house in Smiljan, which is now a Memorial Center. And also more about Ojkan – the oldest way of singing in Croatia which was added to the UNESCO list of rare immaterial cultural heritage.
