A great lesson of history and great view if you have the courage to climb upstairs. Note that it is a rather difficult thing to do and unable to go there with elderly people, babies or if not in shape :).

It is open for visit after the clock strikes, each hour. As I climbed the stairs changed shape after each level. Nice view from atop.

A beautiful place with Stephan's tower, it was closed, but many 'just married' couples with their families are coming to take pictures and it's amazing to watch. There are also archeological items and the amazing bell symphony.
