The Piast Tower in Opole is a lookout tower and a significant historic and architectonic monument. It is located in the south-western part of Poland , on an island on the Oder River. Its name originates from the name of the long-time ruling Silesian dynasty of Piast. Along with the cone on the top, the height of the Piast Tower is 42 meters. The tower offers the tourists splendid views of the historic core of the city of Opole .

History and construction

The Piast Tower was built towards the end of the thirteenth century. It was a part of the Opole Castle, in other words, a part of the fortifications. The walls are rather robust - at several points, near the foundations of the tower, you can identify the walls up to three meters thick. It is considered as one of the oldest examples of defensive architecture in Poland . The complex of buildings survived until the 1930s when most of the constructions were pulled down because of poor technical condition. Anyway, the Piast Tower has been preserved up to the present time. In 1957, its top was provided with an eleven meter high conical attachment.
