  Two towers
by FRONA
 
 

Having to pray five times a day meant that good Muslims needed to know the time. Throughout the Ottoman empire, towers with public clocks were constructed for this purpose, and Sarajevo`s beautiful tower originally dates from the mid-17th century, with a clock brought here by traders from London. The tower can not be visited, but it is admired best from the courtyard of the Aeroplan restaurant.
