Novi Sad's Special Clock Tower | Serbia Travel

This is the only picture of the Clock Tower in Novi Sad's Petrovaradin Fortress that I have on a good blue skies day.


I have other shots of the clock tower but they all looked somber (see below). And it so happened that I am in this picture as well which does not always happen a lot these days. I have since forced myself to do selfies so that I have souvenirs of the places I have been to.

But sometimes I get tired of selfies. Who would have thought that I get tired of selfies? I mean, I used to love selfies. Don't we all? Hmm, must be the case of getting older? That suddenly I find this selfie thing so trivial. Yes, so silly and teenage-ish. But don't worry I will still take selfies for posterity's sake.

Anyway, my hair is too long. Too long for my age (I am turning 46 in 3 months). So I think I am going to the hair salon this weekend to trim this a bit, hopefully have a hairdo representing my 40ish age. I find it quite soothing to grow older though, but this would be a separate topic altogether to post about.

Question: What time is it do you think on the clock?

You might think it is before 08:00 in the morning huh? No, it is not. It is before 11:00 in the morning.

This clock is a bit special. The short hand shows the minute while the long hand the hour. The reason for this -- the other way around -- is that the clock's precise time must be visible from afar for everyone. For the changing of the guards in the fortress, for the boats passing by and for the rest of the city population across the river. If this is the case then it does somehow make sense to make the long hand of the clock speak for the hour.

But yeah, you do not really think I was standing here before 08:00 huh? The truth is I was still in bed at that time, haha! Trying my best to wake up. I like being lazy in the mornings when I am travelling.

Here is the tower clock on a differet greyish day:


Can you guess the time here?
