Tourists visiting the Clock Tower at SNP Square in Banská Bystrica can experience several novelties this season.

“A new high-quality scenic binocular has been installed on the tower’s banister,” said Alena Motyčková, head of the Banská Bystrica Information Centre, as quoted by the TASR newswire.

Moreover, there will be a mintage automat for commemorative coins with the motif of Banská Bystrica. Tourists will get information about the tower and town of Banská Bystrica in several languages.

The “Memlycard” also increases the attractiveness of the Clock Tower – visitors can capture the beauty of the square on a real postcard. At first, it is necessary to take a picture of the QR code on the poster or enter app.memlycard.com into a phone.

Then fill the code from the poster, upload a photo, write a message and fill the form addressee and send. The postcard will be printed and send to anyone in the world for free.
