Nikola Tesla EV Rally Passing Through Tesla’s Birthplace In Smiljani, Croatia

The Nikola Tesla EV Rally — the international electric car rally with the highest prize money fund in the world (as it’s being billed) — will visit the birthplace of the icon of electrical technology, Nikola Tesla, this year. This is the first year for the rally, which will go 530 miles. Tesla’s birthplace is of course the Croatian city of Smiljani.

The five-stage international car rally begins on May 27 in the tiny picturesque town of Rovinj, and finishes up on the 31st in Zagreb — along the way passing through the Plitvice Lakes National Park and much of the rest of Croatia.
