Towers of the Medieval Town Walls

Theatre Tower
The north-western guard tower (second half of the 15th century) of the former town walls is today a part of the Slovene National Theatre, which was built in 1885. Already since 1825, the tower, which used to serve as a torture chamber, has been used by travelling families of actors. In 1849, the tower was used as theatre for the first-time play in the Slovene language – Linhart’s play “Županova Micka”. (Theatre Tower)
