Saint Henry Tower, Prague, Czech Republic
The Saint Henry Tower (Jindrisska Vez) was built between 1472 and 1475 as part of the Church of Saint Henry which already had a spire but did not have walls strong enough to support the weight of the bells and so it was decided to build the Saint Henry Tower.

Saint Henry's Tower is one of the tallest belfry's in Prague and from the top viewing platform gives excellent views of both Wenceslas Square and the surrounding New Town area.

The Tower is around 65 meters high and is made up of 10 floors. At the top there is a popular restaurant called the Zvonice which means Belfry, the restaurant has a wonderful interior that maintains the original belfry timbers and stonework and occupies the 7th, 8th and 9th floors of the tower and has the original Maria bell hanging overhead you while you dine giving a totally unique experience.
