clock tower
The Clock Tower (or Saat Kula) was built in the 16th century (1566) and originally the top was made of wood. Its clock came from Hungary. The original structure was burnt in 1689 when the Austrian general Piccolomini set Skopje on fire during his retreat. The present Clock Tower dates from 1904. It has 8 sides of 3 m long and is vertically divided into 4 parts, ending in a dome. With its height of 39.8 m it is the highest clock tower of Macedonia.
