Clock Tower - Etropole, Picture

 Etropole City is located along the river Iskar in the foothills of Etropole valley, where the highest point is Mount Baba (1787 m). The settlement was founded in VII-VI century BC The Thracian tribe tribali, an important crossroad, which is connected in ancient Macedonia and Thrace to the Danube. Trade with neighboring and other countries contributed to the successful development of the settlement.

Nowadays, with a dose of humor, on 1 April in Etropole is held in celebration boiled Zetyovo - men who have migrated to the birthplace of their wives.

Remarkable architectural monument in Etropole is 20 meters high clock tower, built in 1710 as a watchtower and in 1821 it was made of clockwork, which is converted into a tower clock. The clockwork tower still measures the time today.
