World Trade Center twin towers in Sarajevo, more recently known as UNIS Towers. They were built in 1986, but I don't know their exact height. If anyone knows it, please contribute.
The picture was taken in 2000, 5 years after the war had officially ended. The buildings were still in ruins. The black "windows" on the upper part of the right tower are actually black plastic bags placed in the window frames instead of the normal glass. I don't know for what purposes, perhaps refugees or homeless sought shelter in these buildings. Again, if you have any idea, please contribute.
Interesting shot of a town I visited in 1979, before the tragic war started and nothing was expected. Thanks for share your interesting gallery. Regards from 4ullas My favourite pics
Do you have any pictures from your 1979 trip?
Yes I have some pictures from that trip to yhe whole former Yugoslavia. Are you interested in any special place?
ANY pictures. I'd love to see some if you have them scanned.
I travelled from Ljubjana, to Zagreb, Sarajevo, Dubrovnik, Kotor, Mostar, Sibenik, zadar and Rjeka. I took many pics and I can scanned for you some. Are you intereted inurban or rural landscapes?
Mostly urban. Whichever you like most. :)
The nickname of this towers were "Mujo" and "Sujo" on behalf of two characters usually involved in popular jokes.

Thank you, Michele!
Hello Andy! The towers you are interested in are 20 stories high, were built in 1986, and severely damaged during the war. Now, they are completely restored. They are more commonly known as Momo & Uzeir. Here is a photo of them, from the Avaz Twist Tower which is 142m tall (on the far left): Momo & Uzeir
and a photo of the Tower itself: Twist Tower
Photos were made in July 2010. Best regards!
