in the picture there is the Barbakan shown, not the Clock Tower. Please change the picture. The Clock Tower stands directly at the main square (SNP Square) and it leans about 1m to side (is not straight).

If you're visiting Banska Bystrica, you're not going to miss the clock tower as it's one of the main focal points in the square. I would also think that most people could schedule the half an hour or so to take a walk up and look around. Is it the most fabulous view I've ever seen? No, but we^re not... More

Such a cool place!! Definately worth the trip out from the capital!! Spent a few weeks in Slovakia and this was my highlight! Great view from top! And so cool that its a leaning tower!! In my travels I found the Slovaks not the friendliest unfortunately-I think those who have traveled here can agree. Even when I was overcome with... More

The Clock Tower or the Leaning Tower is not to represent on the picture above. This is the Barbican main entrance to the Town Castle. The Clock Tower is located on the top of SNP square. At this time is deviated 68 cm from the basis. This state is explained by the old legend. It was tilted by angels who... More

It's an easy climb upstairs to enjoy the 360 degrees view over the center of the town. The ticket costs 1 Euro and it is sure worth to visit it and enjoy the bird view of the town and surrounding hills.

The clock tower is located at the main square and when you take a closer look at it, for example comparing it to other nearby towers, you can see it's leaning. The lookout is accessible via a candy store at its base and costs a little money. The view of the city's surrounding is really astonishing, some people, who really... More
