New Town Hall Tower, Prague (Built 1452–1456)


New Town Hall (Prague)

The New Town Hall Tower was build during the years 1452–1456. Amazing, isnt’ it?

It is 70 meters (230 feet) tall and you have to climb 212 steps to its summit. It has 6 stories. The ground floor served as a city jail.

There is a gothic chapel on the first floor which was the last sanctuary for those sentenced to death.
