In 1846 in the small town of Lithuania Plungė, Count Zubov built a castle with a 12 – meter clock tower and clock with one hour arrow on all sides. The bell of the tower begins to announce time to the inhabitants every 15 minutes. The castle clock tower is similar to the Palazzo Vecchio palace in Florence. It is the oldest still known stone building in the whole Plungė. The purpose of the building has been different throughout the years. In 1989 the building ceased to have a purpose and for 20 years left in ignorance and silence. But in 2010, thanks to residents and cultural workers, renovation of the building began.
