“Amazing place!! (wrong picture used here)”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2013

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 joy at being at tower (it has been on my bucket-list for 10 years) I hugged the base.. a man came out from the taxi rank at the bottom, mumbled and spat on the ground before going back in! Huh! Anyway, I was happy!
The tower and square in front of it it a lovely spot!

“change the picture”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2013

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 crashed and seized its top while flying over its roof at night. From the top of the Tower is nice view around, but now is not possible used this attraction because starts safety inspection of the Tower. Another names of the Tower are referred as green or weight. Under tower was before town torture chamber and prison.
