Description

The picturesque foothill village of Veľké Borové is an unusual tourist lookout tower. At first glance, you would have guessed that the lookout tower has been standing here for decades, but the opposite is true. It looks like an old border tower, but the building is indeed relatively new.

The bricked tower has a wooden walkway with a lookout at a height of about 7 meters, which can be reached by wooden stairs. From the lookout tower, there are beautiful views of the surrounding mountains - Roháče, Skorušinské vrchy, Chočské vrchy and Oravská pahorkatina. The lookout tower was rebuilt from an old transformer station and today, it also serves as a belfry.

There is a hunting room in the tower and an information panel is installed nearby, which will introduce you to the history of the lookout tower and the local conditions. Surroundings of the tower offers great opportunities for hiking, as well as recreation.
