Event Description:

The International Club of DC and the Embassy of Croatia cordially request the pleasure of your company at the Croatian Embassy for a dinner reception and delightful evening of Croatian culture, music, wine, and cuisine on the occasion of the 159th anniversary of the birth of Croatian-born scientist Nikola Tesla. This is a wonderful opportunity to Discover Beautiful Croatia, "Land of a Thousand Islands," as you meet other guests and enjoy live music performances.

We are pleased to announce that Tesla Motors will be on hand to present attendees with special test rides in the Tesla Model S, the world's most sophisticated car incorporating Nikola Tesla's electric motor technology.

Discover the beauty of Croatia: mild climate, crystal clear warm sea, beautiful beaches, virgin nature, all combined with the rich history and cultural heritage of the Croatian people. Your evening features a dinner buffet feast of traditional Croatian delicacies as well as the opportunity to meet Croatians who are ICDC members while you discover a country rich in culture and history.

The embassy staff will be on hand to provide information about the history, future, and tourism. You will also see a movie that offers an overview of the beautiful land, culture, and people that make up Croatia as well as tour the embassy’s rare collection of beautiful paintings and artistic pieces.

Space for this very special event is limited and we expect the event to sell out. Please reserve your tickets now. Kindly note that the event is expected to be very popular and there will be many other guests to enjoy the event with you at the Embassy of Croatia. Subsequently the event is not a seated event and is presented as a stand up reception so you can walk around the embassy, meet other guests, and enjoy the many facets of the event.
