AVALSKI TORANJThe Avala Tower, destroyed in the NATO aviation strike in 1999, was opened ceremoniously on Wednesday, April 21st, as a main event within the manifestation ‘’Belgrade days’’. The Tower has two elevators and a restaurant at its 119th meter, and a gazebo at 122nd meter of height. A total height of the Tower is 204,57 meters, which makes it the tallest structure in the Balkans. Its construction was initiated by Radio-Television of Serbia and Association of Journalists of Serbia, with the support from a large number of citizens. 200 palm prints of the most meritorious donors and participants of the action ‘’Let’s build the Avala Tower’’ will be built into the access path. The Avala Tower was projected in 1959/1960, and built between 1961 and 1964. Its public opening took place in 1965. The former Tower was 202,8 meters tall and was considered one of the most beautiful TV repeaters in Europe. It was the only tower in the world which had a section in the form of equilateral triangle, as a symbol of Serbian three-legged stool. The opening ceremony of the Avala Tower, the tallest structure in the Balkans, began around 5 p.m. with the intonation of the State anthem ‘’Boze pravde”, and it was also made more pompous by the airplanes which, flying over the Avala Tower, made the Serbian flag out of smoke, as well as by the RTS choir, “Big band” and the children choir “Kolibri”.
