Clocks on towers in your city

I think, that clocks on town hall's, church's towers are one with the most characteristic architectonical details old, historical european towns and cities

Show you clocks from one of the most beautiful towns in Poland - Torun (Thorn)


Clock on gothic town hall




Gothic St. Johns Cathedry




Neogothic St. Cathrine Church




Neoromanesque former St.Trinity Church


St.Cathrine and St Trinity by night


and other one... on Mokre suburb...


I wait for your towers with clocks

St.Peter - it used to be the biggest clock in the world for centuries (8.7m diameter). Now it's the colgate in Jersey City... in the background Fraumünster with the famous Chagal windows.

St Stephen's Tower, London

The most famous clock tower in the world.

("Big Ben" is actually the name of the bell, not the tower )

Just about every village, town, and city in Bosnia has a clocktower because, when these settlements were developed, it was an Islamic necessity.

Sarajevo's clocktower:


And the one in Gracanica, typical of village clocktowers:

The restaurant is called "Sahat Kula", which means "Clocktower" in Bosnian.
