Great view of the city from up there.

Firstly you should know that it is not for the claustrephobic or those who might need more than one seat on the bus. there are only 97 steps to climb, but it is very narrow and... read more

Firstly you should know that it is not for the claustrephobic or those who might need more than one seat on the bus. there are only 97 steps to climb, but it is very narrow and very verticle. The views from the top are fantastic but it is still crapmed up there with no room for squeezing past people. Getting... More

Steps and the space inside are really narrow. I would not suggest to someone who is prone to claustrophobia. Transition from the narrow dark internal stairs to the open space on gallery with small guardrail and back is really interesting experience.

This minaret is for us “normal” tourists, who are not particularly interested in religion history, nothing much to see. It’s just a grey tower in a small square. But… If you like to test your condition or your claustrophobia by climbing to the balcony then this is the place. The stairs are steeply, slippery, high and many and the space... More

Only for thin people ;) it is very narrow inside in a staircase and outside on the terrace. I have to say I felt a bit uncomfortable as I suffer from vertigo, but the view is worth to see.

A word of warning: not for the faint-hearted or the claustraphobic. It's very tight inside the winding staircase, so I wouldn't recommend it if you're on the large side, just imagine the embarrassing headlines in the local paper! So, once you're at the top there's a dizzying view and only a thin metal railing between you and thin air. Pity... More

Some might say that the staircase is tight and scary, but I'd say it is truly romantic! Having climbed the narrow and steep stairs you can enjoy a beautiful panorama of the city at your footsteps. It is true, that you get a similar view from the castle, but this is more intimate, and in the very heart of the... More

the view from the top is great and the architecture of the Minaret is worth a look, but the journey up is not so pleasant. you have to wait a lot because they allow only 4 at the time. there is almost 100 really steep high stairs and the space is really tight, you feel cramped up between the walls...

It offers a nice view on the town however you might rather consider visiting the castle where from you can enjoy the same panoramic view.It is a bit boring as well but the ticket is cheap.

97 steps in a very narrow tube. climbing up steps by steps and in the end you "have" to step out to a totally thin outside balcon which is just 3-4 meters around the Minaret cap. Everything is beneath you
