Dolly5028The Black Tower is located at the northeast corner of Przemysl Otoka II Square, diagonally opposite to the City Hall, right next to the Cathedral of St. Nicholas. The reason why it is called the Black Tower is that its color is a little dark. The construction time can be seen from the bronze carved door under the tower. In 1553, you can climb up to see the whole view of Budejovice.
