The White Tower is the most dominating feature of the city Hradec Králové. Standing 72 m in height, this Renaissance campanile was finished in 1589 and served the town as a fire lookout and watchtower. The White Tower was named after its building material, which is white stone. The tower houses the second largest and heaviest bell in the Czech Republic (after bell Zikmund of St. Vitus Cathedral in Prague). The Augustine bell weighs 10 tonnes and is 2 metres in diameter.
