This political school was opened in 1981 in the birthplace of Tito.

During the Yugoslav era, this boarding school was home to hundreds of young students being educated on Marxist political philosophy and Yugoslav socialist theory. This school was built at the direct request of Tito himself. Sources cite Tito, who complained in 1976 that Yugoslavia had a problem where “we have a large number of people who are good communists but theoretically weak. That needs to be corrected. The basics of Marxism must be known ”. This may explain not only why the political school was built in Kumrovec, but also why it bore his name. The project was funded directly by the Yugoslav Communist League (SKJ). In Kumrovec there had been a small political school in the Spomen Cathedral since 1975, but after the completion of the SKJ Political School, the classes were relocated there.

Later, from 1990, the school was used to accommodate and train members of the Croatian military. When armed conflicts broke out in parts of Croatia in the 1990s, refugees from Vukovar were housed here. These were housed in this 8,500 square meter building until 2003. Since then, the 145 rooms, bar, cinema, library, kitchen and dining room have been empty.

Tito himself never attended the school as it was only inaugurated 1 year after his death.
In June 2019 the building was sold to a Chinese company for 2 million euros.

Then the building was completely cleared and is now in this condition.
