Old Sarajevo Clock Tower is a neat part of Old Town Sarajevo. Time is on lunar time instead of normal time. The tower is easy to see if you are in Old Town Sarajevo.

It's unique! The only "alla turca" and "alla franca" clocktower in the World - i.e. showing the time both by Islamic method and Western. Maintained by the famous Sarajevo's family of goldsmiths and watchmakers Zlatar

You can't miss it in old town and it is a good clock tower. It keeps lunar time. All these Balkan towns have a clock tower and this one is nice.
