Fodor's Review

To get a good view over the city, climb the 225 steps up to the Renaissance gallery of the Black Tower at the northeast corner of the square next to St. Nicholas's Cathedral. Don't look for a Black Tower; it's actually white, but got the nickname after a fire left some charred marks.
