Its height is 40 m, the minaret has 14 facets, which makes it incredibly durable. Instead of the Crescent, its top is adorned with a Catholic cross. On a balcony of a minaret it is possible to climb on 97 steps. The staircase is very narrow and the ascent is not for everyone. The day of Curious Sportsmen))). The pleasure is paid.
Krásny výhlad z minaretu ! Neskutočne úzke schodisko, kopec schodov ale ten výhlad stojí za to :) celé mesto na dlani. Hore sa môžte zdržať cca 15 minút. more »Beautiful appearance from Minaret! An impossibly narrow staircase, hill stairs But the appearance is worth it:) The whole city on the palm. You can refrain from up to about 15 minutes.
