Observation Deck
The Clock Tower of Podgorica, Montenegro is located at Bećir Beg Osmanagić square, in the Stara Varoš neighborhood. It is one of the very few Ottoman landmarks that survived the bombing of Podgorica in World War II.HistorySahat Kula was built in 1667, by Adži-paša Osmanagić, a prominent citizen of Podgorica. It is a freestanding 19m tall stone clock tower. Its current turret clock mechanism was made in 1890 by Pietro Colbachini foundry in Bassano del Grappa, Italy, after Podgorica was incorporated into Montenegro (original mechanism was made in Austria). Around the same time, a metal cross was installed at the top of the tower, symbolizing transfer of the city from the Ottomans into the hands of Christian Montenegrins. The cross was made by Stevan Radović, Lazar Radović's grandfather.Today, Sahat kula is an important cultural monument of Montenegro, protected by law. The clock was renovated in January 2012, when new electric mechanism was installed, as old one is kept for historic significance only.

  • I didn't expect much from her, so not disappointed. The tower is surrounded by some of the guys he was sometimes kicked it to the skin. The benches under a town smaller than the locals, of course not in the Köppen climate classification. Nézelődőt, Photo Maker is not seen. However, if we are there-a few minutes from worth stopping.

  • The Clock Tower is located in Vojvode Bećira Osmanagića Square. It needs some TLC and the area around it is shady with lots of Gypsy children begging for money. If you are in this area eat at Pod Vola...  more »
