  • The White Tower built in 1581, a belfry to the adjacent church. Following the fire in 1758 it was elongated and refashioned into the current shape. At the time the tower was also a gate to the town...

  • But yes, you will notice her when you get to Klatov. In winter, the alley from the square makes for nice photos. Right next to the Church of the Nativity of the Virgin Mary. Also, the view of the alley trees through the Bílý tower passage is nice, especially in autumn. Unfortunately, it is not possible to climb the mountain to the White Tower. Take a tour of the black tower on the other side of náměstí Klatovy Even now, entry is allowed on the weekend in autumn. I recommend. You can see more on my you tube page Radko Centrum of Culture and Entertainment.
  • The white tower was built after a fire in 1689 on the site of the originally two-story bell tower in the immediate vicinity of the dean's church. It formed the entrance gate to the cemetery, which used to be around the church. After the fire in 1758, when the tower burned down again, it was raised by a third floor and repaired to its present form. The portal on the tower was originally set in the facade of the archdeacon's church.
