Kuwait City, Kuwait

Well, unlike with my previous Kuwait postcard, this time im sure this one shows something from Kuwait City...in particular the Kuwait Towers.

The Kuwait Towers are three towers of reinforced concrete.
The main tower is 187 metres high and serves as a restaruant and water tower. It also has a Viewing Sphere which rises to 123 meters above sea level and completes a full round turn every 30 minutes. The second tower is 145.8 metres high and serves as a water tower. The third tower houses equipment to control the flow of electricity and illuminates the two bigger towers.

this is the fact that i found most interesting...the towers were built by Energoprojekt, a company from Belgrade, Serbia. Well, i dont live in Belgrade, but i feel it as mine...and i really love the place...well, i love other places in the world as well, but this one has a sentimental value...

They kind of look like those old Soviet towers. I always thought those were cool.
