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

The nickname of this towers were "Mujo" and "Sujo" on behalf of two characters usually involved in popular jokes.

Happy that you shared with us this symbolic photo. Cheers!

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!
