The clock tower in Pazardzhik will be restored

The project for the restoration of the Clock tower in Pazardzhik was approved, announces the architect Hristo Gerasimov. The Clock tower was built in the 18th century, but nowadays only the remnants of the building are visible in front of the police station of the city. The project is in accordance with the National institute for cultural monuments. It’s execution will begin sometime this year.

According to the project, the existing foundations of the tower will be kept. The base of the tower will be nearly six metres tall, and includes a perch. The third level of the tower is three metres tall and is shaped like a pyramid. The old clock will be replaced by statues of the saints Konstantin and Elena, patron saints of Pazardzhik. The fourth level is about ten metres tall, in the shape of a prism with eight sides and has a steep, winding staircase. The fifth level holds the mechanisms of the clock, which are four and are facing the four directions of the world. The roof of the tower is wooden. The total height of the tower is 27 metres.
