After vast reconstruction, the tower of the Catholic church of Saint Elisabeth in Zvolen is available to visitors. It has been open since July and the town considers it a big plus for tourists, My Zvolen reported.
The tower has not been open for more than 100 years. “It is a national monument of great importance, and we want to give it enough attention,” said the mayor of Zvolen Lenka Balkovičová, as quoted by My Zvolen.

The interior of the tower was dilapidated, she said. They repaired 75 stone stairs leading up to the tower. Bannisters of the lookout balcony were also changed, worked out by artists/smiths to keep its original look.
