Tower of the Deanery Church
The big tower of the Dean's Church of the Nativity of the Virgin Mary in Písek at Bakaláře, a total of 72 m in height, was built in 1489 as a municipal watchtower. At a height of 42 metres, there was a guard’s flat. In 1555 the tower was damaged by fire. The characteristic image of it was supplemented by 4 clock faces with inverted hands after the mid-19th century. You can climb to the gallery by a comfortable a 210-step wooden staircase. As you ascend, you will also see four modern bells with a total weight of 3.3 tons.
Due to limited number of participants in one tour we recommend previous reservation of the tower visit in the Tourist information centre Písek.
