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.

Extra hour - yuppie

In the whole Europe early Sunday morning, the clocks are going back one hour to Greenwich Mean Time, so we are all going to have an extra hour in bed. If you're interested here is an interesting article about it.

This clock is showing 'exact' time to passers by in the city centre, better known as Korzo where we all have fun.

Enjoy that extra hour wherever you are!

superbe horloge, qui nous rapelle qu'en france on passe a l'heure d'hivers et qu'aujourd'hui on gagne une heure de sommeil.
c'est la meme chose chez toi ?

superb clock, which makes us remember that in France one passes has the hour of winters and that today one hour of sleep is gained. it is the same thing at home?

Beautiful clock, and a gorgious blue sky! Here on the US West coast we call young urban professionals with more money than good sense "yuppies" so I got a kick out of seeing you use it about the time change. We will really enjoy the extra hour!

As Europe did we in the US also set our clocks back an hour last night (actually at 2am this morning)... As zsolt72 did I still woke up early and am using the extra hours to visit DP blogs.

Actually, the Singapore and West Malaysia Standard Time is permanently on daylight saving!

There's some history behind it. Too long to say it here.

thanks to all of you for stopping by!

i'm pleased to hear that majority of you really took advantage of that extra hour, i was awake the whole night - 'till 4.30am and when i woke up this 'morning' it wasn't as late as it should have been if it wasn't for that hour =)

I awakened one hour early so it didn't do me much good! I love the clock and so clever of you to take it just before 12 o'clock!

Isn't it funny how we think we got an extra hour? We are so used to thinking about time by the clock.
