  • Well, I think it is fair price. There is no open view point at the top of tower
  • The former and only the Barbican in the city, named in the 17th century Kaisertrutz, from the defense of the city from the invasion of imperial troops. Was founded in the 14th century and meet a defensive role. It was here that came to the city walls-triple from the Tower of St. Mary's Church, and the double-Tower side street which depicts. The characteristic tower standing in the heart of the former was lower and fully Gothic, which changed after the pozarze city in the year 1691 when rebuilt it in Baroque and nasadzono cebulasty helmet. The turret had a role in the full strategic, but from the time fire and its increase met the only decorative function. until the mid-19th century, the Barbican was Reichenbacher Tower connected to what you see on the same Tower (selected higher arc with black stone), leading to a quick connection between the defence tower and the frying pan. The city walls began to tear down about the year 1830 and this process lasted until 1848 year when finally zniewlowano most unnecessary, and as stewards of contemporary thought "out of the way in development and urban plans". This communication with the Tower also met the fate the Barbican the Barbican and once on the half-open spięto connector and the neo-Gothic entrance to which is today a museum. The Museum is worth seeing, because of style into uniaktowe, vestments or other paraments surviving from the fire the Church of St. Peter and Paul, the original gothic altars, statues and model of przedstwiajacy them in the middle ages. In the collection there are various valuable graphics, images and maps for the equally Zgorzelec and surrounding areas. A place with a rich history, which should find the top ten "Must to see" while visiting the city.
