NEW TOWER ON AVALA On Mountain Avala, there was Telecommunitation tower an unprecedented engineering project of Milan Krstic.Built from 1963-1964,it was 202,87 m high.The tower was unique in that it stood on three-legged base above the ground,rather than dug into the ground.The Avala tower was erected without scaffolding,from inside so it appeared -to rise on its own.The tower was the tenth highest in the world when it was completed,and the most beautiful the symbol of Belgrade.

NATO planes bombed it on the night of April 29.1999.The powerful explosions damaged the support pillars,bringing the 4000 tons of re-enforced concrete and the 60m,25-ton antenna down across the road.
