The walk up is punctuated by media presentations (most in english) on the history of Hradec Kralove and its distinctive contributions. Beautiful views from the top. The original stone spiral staircase that begins the climb would be very risky to the elderly or to those...More

It is definitely worth to climb 226 steps and enjoy the city views (full of high-quality modern and historic architecture) from the 72 m high renaissance tower with the Bell Augustin, the third largest bell in the Czech Republic!
