Information

This facility is a relived interpretation of an important architectural and engineering composition but refreshed with new architectural, construction and technological accomplishments in a domain of modern construction technology, usage of new construction materials, etc.

With its reconstruction RMD is reconstructing Belgrade and they are giving back the importance to domestic construction.

In 2004, Radio Television Serbia commenced a series of fund-raising events in order to collect money to construct the building once again at the same place it was destroyed. In 2005, clearance of the site where the tower was destroyed began and on 21 December 2006 the construction of a new Avala Tower commenced. An agreement regarding its construction was signed by Dušan Basara, director of the construction sector of the Ratko Mitrovic Company — which will be in charge of the construction of the tower — and general director of RTS, Aleksandar Tijanić.

Initially, completion of the new tower was expected in August 2008, but construction works were severely delayed. The opening date was pushed back to 29 April, the tenth anniversary of its destruction.

Hight of Avala tower is 202 m.
