Built of stone and brick at the end of the 13th century, this massive Gothic tower stands 70 meters tall and leans just 55 centimeters, a result of a strong wind in 1703.

We weren't actually able to enter and climb the tower during our stay in Krakow, but it is a prominent feature of the Main Square. Nice to take photos of, and I imagine you get some good views at the top!

The tower is situated in the main town square and definitely stands out. It also has a person playing the trumpet to symbolise the last man standing in one of their famous battles.

I like this building. There are interesting unusual stairs, but you cannot go out on gallery. It is shame because the view is only from inside.
