There have been few scientists among the world's greats who obliged mankind as much as Tesla. He has a special place because his inspirational inventions will remain forever part of our civilization. A man for all time and an "electricity genius" - this was Nikola Tesla, said Serbian Arts and Sciences Academy (SANU) President Dr Nikola Hajdin at the opening of the central event held on the occasion of marking the one-hundred-fiftieth anniversary of birth of Nikola Tesla at Belgrade Sava Convention Hall on July 10, 2006. On the same morning of the anniversary of one of the greatest minds and a man of the world, at Belgrade airport that bears the great man's name, a monument - work of Darinka Radovanović - devoted to him was unveiled by Mining and Energy Supply Minister Radomir Naumov. Distinguished guests that attended included members of the Serbian government, diplomatic corps, representatives of our community from the town of Niagara Falls in Canada, representatives of the power supply company of Serbia, which financed the making of the monument.
