View of the Avaz Twist Tower.
Twist Tower is a 176 m tall skyscraper in Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina. It is the headquarters for Dnevni avaz, a Bosnian newspaper company. The tower is located in the Marijin Dvor city neighborhood, Sarajevo's central municipality. Construction began in 2003 and was finished in 2008. The tower is notable for its twisted façade.

Following the war which devastated the country, Bosnia has seen a positive boom in construction which places it as one of the countries with the most construction going on in south east Europe.

As the name suggests the design is another twisting tower much in the same vein as the Calatrava's Turning Torso in Sweden.
