From an aesthetic standpoint I am not a big fan, but I absolutely love the imposing nature of the clock tower.

Your defensiveness is hilarious.

BACK TO TOPIC.
I would really appreciate some updates on the back clock, because I'me pretty sure they've started working on it after the brown bars besides it and the silver shiny domes atop those bars.

sarajevocity, thanks for the link. purepaki, i've had a look at sarajevo's link and I don't really understand any of it. That's ok though, it was just idle curiousity on my part, I don't really understand any form of religious worship.
Sorry for sidetracking the thread. As for the back clockface, I thought the crane on that side was in the way for now.
