On every hour, a trumpet signal — called the heynal is played from the top of the taller of St. Mary's two towers. The plaintive tune breaks off in mid-stream, to commemorate the famous 13th century trumpeter, who was shot in the throat while sounding the alarm before the Mongol attack on the city. The noon-time heynal is heard across Poland and abroad broadcast live by the Polish national Radio 1 Station.
