Reviewed 4 August 2014 via mobile

First, you have to run up some steep stairs. This is fun. Then, you get a great view on the town. You can take several beautiful pictures. You can still find a hill of powder in there.

“Nice detour, not crowded, nice view on top”
Reviewed 2 August 2014 via mobile

To get to the top of the tower are winded stairs which you'll be tired after climbing, but to get to the top is great. It's a lovely view to look upon prague. It's not crowded at the top unlike the astronomical clock tower.

“Tower”
Reviewed 28 July 2014

Black tall tower, similar to other towers in city. Nice place, worth a quick detour, does not take too much time to admire.

“Uncrowded and inexpensive tower”
Reviewed 21 July 2014

If you like stone towers, odd sculptures, stained glass and spiral staircases -- this is your place! There is a small fee, which you pay after the first set of twisty stairs. You are now above the arch of this old city gate. Go up another spiral to the second grand room, with windows and weird stone carvings. Then ascend the final spiral and wood stairs to the top attic. There you'll exit onto the parapet wall, looking through stone window frames upon this "City of 100 Towers." Each corner has that distinctive "Prague" turret with double windows. This is not crowded, unlike the jammed towers at the city center.
