In the dark past, the lookout terrace in the Old Town was the collection point for rubbish and feces. After a few hundred years, quite a bit accumulated. This procedure continued until the middle of the 19th century. It was during this period that this handsome hill was “created”, on which a building even stood (until 1944).
During the reconstruction of the Old Town (1947 – 1956), the building was abandoned and the panoramic terrace with a view of the Vistula, the Praga district with the dominating St. Florian’s Cathedral and, far in the hinterland, the national stadium, built for the 2012 European Football Championship, were designed.
The viewing platform is barrier-free in itself, but the Old Town is not the best place for wheelchair users. In any case, help is needed here.
