Minaret

#ARTICLE_DATE_LETREHOZVA#: 21 February 2013  |  Created: 04 March 2015

The Minaret is the northernmost built monument in Europe from the Ottoman period.


The building has a 14-angle ground plan and it is 40 metres high. The tower built from carved sandstone has survived the centuries quite well. Inside the building 97 steps go up the balcony surrounded by an iron bar. It is worth overcoming the spiral stairs for the sake of the wonderful view!
