A forum dedicated to Nikola Tesla was  held at the PTT Museum

The forum "Culture through Post" was held tonight at the PTT Museum on the occasion of the 165th anniversary of the birth of Nikola Tesla. The lecture "Nikola Tesla and the principle of harmony in Serbian culture" was given by Dr Predrag Milosavljević, associate professor at the  Teacher Education Faculty in Belgrade, whose most important scientific works include a work on the geometric-proportional basis of Tesla's research results from Colorado Springs.

Speaking about the idea, approach and results of Tesla's work, Milosavljević pointed out the basic influences related to the principle of harmony that was nurtured in Serbian culture during the 19th and 20th centuries, and whose roots can be seen in the heritage of medieval Serbia. He pointed out that the principle of harmony is the basic starting point from which Serbian thinkers developed a view of the world and creativity in relation to the culture from which they originate.

"Our great Nikola Tesla raised this idea to a higher level through the principle of harmony in his scientific work. Tesla was the first who managed to do with his work what others did not, and that is to technologise harmony and in that way harmonise the work of his electrical machines and devices with the way in which nature functions", said Milosavljević.

On behalf of the Post of Serbia and the PTT Museum, Marko Jelić greeted those who gathered, emphasizing that he was especially pleased that after more than a year, a traditional forum and a new meeting was organised with live audience at a well-known place - the PTT Museum. He stated that the PTT Museum has been organising events in honour of Nikola Tesla for years, and that the cycle of forums dedicated to the life and work of this world-renowned scientist has always represented exceptional lecturers and connoisseurs of Tesla's life and work.

The PTT Museum has recently been open to visitors on weekends, during working hours on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays from 10 am to 6 pm, and on Thursdays and Saturdays from 12 to 8 pm.
