The Avaz Twist Tower is a 176 m tall skyscraper in Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina. It is the headquarters for Dnevni avaz, a Bosnian newspaper company.[1] The tower is located in the Marijin Dvor city neighborhood, Sarajevo's central municipality.[2] Construction began in 2006 and was finished two years later in 2008. The tower is notable for its twisted facade.
