Long Description:
V roce 1604 nechalo mesto porídit nový velký zvon Michal, který vážil pres 5 tun. Pri zavešení na kostelní vež ale nastaly potíže, zvon rozechvíval kostelní vež a nastala obava, aby se vež i se zvonem nezrítila. Proto se obec rozhodla postavit zvonici. Kamenná pametní deska udává, že zvonice byla založena 4. dubna nákladem obce a dokoncena 12. listopadu, byla tedy postavena ve velice krátké dobe 222 dní. Na zvonici vidíme slunecní hodiny a znak mesta, vež sama má pudorys 10×10 metru.
The town authorities acquired a new big bell called Michal which due to its size and weight (5040 kg) made the church tower quake. The town authorities therefore decided to build a new bell tower. A stone memorial plate indicates it was begun on the 4th April at the expense of the municipality and finished on 12th November. There is a sundial on the bell tower. The tower itself has a footprint of 10 x 10 m. The gate of sheet metal covering the windows was recently changed for wooden blinds because the sound propagation is better and the bells are less at risk from vibrations.
