Worth the climb to see the panoramic view, every floor has a historical theme of the area. 30 meters high.

Characteristic of medieval cities there were usually two gate entrances through the walled city. Passing through them is like passing through time into an era hundreds of years ago.

The place worth the price - PLN 4.00 (PLN 3.00 with the discount) is the maxiumum one should pay for 'the view' it offers.

You can physically go to the top of this gate but we decided to save our legs for the square walk instead. Many people dressed with various costumes greeted people ringing box for donations. Historic part of Sandomierz.

Viewing deck was closed when I was in Sandomierz so for me, it was just an architecturally nice gate, but I'm sure the views are spectacular from the top.
