Right next to one of the most beautiful squares in Poland – the Main Market Square in Wroclaw is the interesting Basilica of St. Elizabeth. Here it is worth to see the interior of the church, but mainly to climb the local tower with an amazing view not only of the historic center of Wroclaw.

When you ascend more than 250 steps, you will finally reach the observation deck. From here you will have probably the most famous view of the city – the Market Square with the beautiful town hall and picturesque houses around the square
