1. Brno, Czech Republic: Cathedral of Saints Peter and Paul
This Baroque cathedral, on Petrov Hill, is a national cultural monument, with two 84-metre-high towers constructed in 1904–5. Traditionally, the midday ringing of the bells of the cathedral actually happens at 11 o’clock in the morning. This is because, according to legend, during the Thirty Years’ War, the invading Swedes had promised to cancel the attack if they failed to capture the city before midday on the 15 August. Brno’s citizens decided to ring the bells an hour early, tricking the Swedes into calling off the siege too soon.
2. Lublin, Poland: Trinitarian Tower
Formerly a simple gatehouse, the 60-metre now Trinitarian Tower was converted in 1819 by architect Antonio Corazzi. The lower floor contains the Archdiocesan Museum; for the energetic, climb the 207 steps to the viewing terrace at the top for a great view out of Lublibn’s UNESCO-listed old town.
3. Norrköping, Sweden: Museum of Work
Norrköping, 160 km southwest of Stockholm, was once a great textile city and harbour and was so important in the raise of industry that it became known as the Manchester of Sweden. As such, the Museum of Work, housed inside an old cotton mill once described as the “most beautiful industrial building in Sweden”, depicts working life and conditions at the time of Sweden’s explosive industrial gorwth.
4. Rostock, Germany: Lighthouse
Rostock, on both the Warnow river and the coast of the Baltic Sea, naturally is a significant destination in maritime history and tourism. The 36.9-metre-high Warnemünde Lighthouse, founded in 1898, is a key spot for tourism and a grand restoration project led to the tower being reopened for visitors to climb in 1993.
