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.

The old town is quite scruffy, looks unchanged since we were last here some 20 years ago, the road surface is still a patchwork of repairs and old cobbles ? The renovation of the tower is first class, so some serious money spent here, its...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!

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!

The tower offers a good panoramic view of the city from the heart of the Old Town, and an exhibition of the tower's history keeps visitors entertained as they ascend the stairway to the viewing platform. Certainly a nice place to visit on a Saturday,...More
