At the time of our visit the tower seemed to be closed for public. We coudl see it only form the outside, in fact it was a lot destryed building which would deserve a reconstruction. I'd recommend to skip this point at this time.

The Watch Tower is apart from the center of Mostar, not to far though. Is a abandoned tower, full of war memories, they should invest in the rebuilt of this tower.

The date of the Clock tower’s construction is unknown, but it is mentioned in a document from 1636 (describing legacy of Saric family, which belonged to well known family of wakifs, there is in south part of town Saric mosque and related muslim cemetery) meaning that it was built even earlier than so. The base is 3.45 square meters an it is 15 meters high. Earlier, the tower had a bell. The 250 kg bell was ordered by the vezir of Herzegovina Ali pasa Rizvanbegovic from Zadar in 1838. During Austro-Hungary period clock tower was used for military purposes (bell was melted). In 1978 this tower added to list of national monuments of B&H anf from 1981 it was returned to it’s original function. The Clock tower was seriously damaged during the war, but reconstructed in 1999. Opposite the tower you can see Museum of Herzegovina (with department Dzemal Bijedic house.
