1000 is cost to climb the tower and I think it was great. Inside there were a few exhibitions, but the main thing to see was the tower and its view. They take cards
From this place you will have a very good view on Győr. And you will also learn about Vilmos Apor. He was the bishop of Győr during World War II. He did a lot to save the population of the city from war crimes and also stood up for the Jewish population.
Gyönyörű kilátás nyílik a városra és a környékre. Akár Pannonhalmát is látni. A lépcsőket kicsit kemény megmászni, de én a tériszonyos is már többször megtettem.
Sok lépcső vezet fel, de megéri!
