The Skewed Clock Tower - as locals use to call it in their language. It really is skewed and sloped from 3 of the 4 corners this tower has, so it looks sloped basically from any direction you look at it :) Even so, there's a nice wooden stairway up where you can walk around the reconstructed outlook and see...

Worth the 1 or 2€ it cost to go in. After 10 am though ! If you have vertigo, be prepared not to enjoy it.

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).

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
