B.Bystrica - Clock tower

It is pretty nice to see central square from perspective 20 m above and panoramic view of the surrounding mountain tops.

Very nice view on square from The Clock Tower. Admission fee is 1.5 EUR and it's worth it. You can see far away on the city and hills.

Great spot to take in the view of the old Old Town Square. There were only two of us there and it was very charming.

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).

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
