After many fires, restorations and destructions, 70m-high Tower of Krakow's Town Hall is the only remaining piece of the 14th century Town Hall, which is proudly standing next to the Cloth Hall.

As a branch of the Krakow's museum, it offers some medieval costumes, photos, infos about its clock. In addition you will get some decent views and LOTS of stairs. From numerous balconies you can take some photos by leaning out the windows, but remember they will not be high quality panoramas you might expect.

Outside the tower you will also feature a metal model of the old Town Hall as it was in the 18th century.

Wikipedia

Town Hall Tower in Krakow, Poland (Polish: Wieza ratuszowa w Krakowie) is one of the main focal points of the Main Market Square in the Old Town district of Krakow.
The Tower is the only remaining part of the old Krakow Town Hall (Ratusz, see painting, below) demolished in 1820 as part of the city plan to open up the Main Square. Its cellars once housed a city prison with a Medieval torture chamber.
In 1967, after a complex conservation which underlined its gothic ancestry, object was given to the Historical Museum in Cracow for management of it.
