City on a grain of salt. Tuzla means a place of salt and it lays on top of the salt lake. It is suspected it has been there for around 7000 years as one of the oldest places in Europe.

Painter & Writer

This part of the city is called Korzo – walking area, very popular.

Few years back we got these two statuettes of Mesa Selimovic, on the right, one of the biggest writers in Bosnia and on the left is Ismet Mujezinovic one of the most celebrated painters.
They were regulars on these streets in their time.

The billboard is massive and certainly is a focal point. At first I thought the statues were real. Great photo!

What a cool way to commemorate these two! Wouldn't it be cool to see one's own statue "haunting" the places where one loved to hang out? I like the way the background of the colorful advert is a great foil for this sunny mid-day shot! Oh, I see some of the big stone "balls" from Seattle's Space Needle seem to have gone on summer holiday to Bosnia! ;^) (I've noticed them in two other city daily photo blogs. . .I wonder where cities buy such fixtures?
