The medieval town was surrounded by a mighty wall that was protected by 12 towers. Some of these towers of the city fortification, such as the present Clock Tower, the Mariners' Tower, and the towers located in Stephanie Park and in the Fridrich Alley have been quite well-preserved.

The four fortified gate systems through which one entered the city were not able to be preserved. The City Park itself is a place of leisure in the heart of the city.
