During those two decades, SFRJ (Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia) spent approximately $6 billion on its construction, three times the combined current annual military budgets of Serbia and Croatia. It was one of the largest and most expensive military construction projects in Europe. The role of the facility was to establish, integrate, and coordinate a nationwide early warning radar network in SFRJ akin to NORAD. The complex was designed and built to sustain a direct hit from a 20-kiloton nuclear bomb, equivalent to the one dropped on Nagasaki.
Kumrovec, the birthplace of Tito, has all sorts of natural and architectoral beauty, as well as specific local cuisine. The political school was a unique concept of the time, where the children of politicians were tutored privately and prepared to someday lead the country. The facility was state of the art and had a cinema, theatre, media library as well as a fallout shelter in case of war. After Kumrovec, you will head to the castle Trakošćan that was built in 14th century, inside of the castle there is a museum that was established in 1953, now it is owned by the Republic of Croatia.
