UNIS Twin towers (2 x 90m) are symbols of modern Sarajevo. They were built in 1986 and designed by Ivan Štraus. The Twin Towers are located in Marijin Dvor district in Sarajevo and were named "Momo and Uzeir" after two characters from a comedy show, a Serb and a Bosniak. The towers were heavily damaged by shelling during the Siege of Sarajevo but remained standing, becoming symbols of resilience. They have been renovated completely beginning in 1999.

The panorama of the city wouldn't be the same without them.
