Beautiful view on square

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

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.
