We Have It; Let’s Preserve It

Posted by Joni in General

I am not going to say: The Avala Tower is now officially opened. That’s because, for us, it was never officially closed. We just didn’t see it for a while, but it was always there with us. Of course, I am delighted to be opening this tower, but I wish that no other Mayor ever has to reopen it again. We have it, let’s preserve it.

Avala Tower Reborn

Posted by Joni in General

The Avala TV Tower, which was destroyed on April 29, 1999, during the 78-day NATO seige on Yugoslavia, was reopened today in a moving national ceremony. Nearly 11 years to the day, it’s been rebuilt and is again the tallest structure in Serbia, a testament to the fortitude and determination of the Serbian people.
