“Big”
Reviewed 4 December 2013

They seemed like a lonely pair of towers in the city center. I kind of hoped we could have gone inside.

“Fantastic view once you climb the 500 stairs!”
Reviewed 4 November 2013

Entrance is decent at eur.3, and we were there on a clear day, so the views were incredible. The stairs vary in height from one flight to the next, but overall the feeling was safe. However, the same stairs are used both for going up and for going down, so expect to get a bit squashed at some passing-points!
It would have been so helpful if someone had put up a labelled map highlighting the buildings you can see from up there, from all 4 sides of the tower.

“Interesting”
Reviewed 24 October 2013

You can't miss these on the skyline, or on a stroll through the city. Stop and take a gaze. On a quiet day it's locals sitting around.
