The construction of clock towers in Bulgaria began in the 16th century and to this day they remain an emblem of the town or village they are in. These clock towers carry many memories of days gone by. One of the most beautiful and interesting cultural monuments in Elena is precisely the Clock Tower. It is recognised as a cultural monument of national importance. A special place was chosen for its construction so it can be seen from every part of the mountain town.
