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's been two years since the tower was repaired. And they did a great job! Glass model of the tower inside, interactive boards with history information and nice view from the top. All that just for 60 CZK.

Hradec Králové is somehow very special thanks to very enterprising liberal authorities of the city at the end of 19th century and several top Czech architects ( Gocar and Kotera ) who have created a very special and "nice to live in" city. The look...More

Talk about a hidden gem....the White Tower was one of our most favourite sights during our Czech holiday. We were fortunate to have heard about this beautiful town and spent hours exploring!
