If you are looking for observing nature from a bird's-eye perspective, and at the same time want to get a little cultural and historical experience you should visit the Dukla Lookout Tower. It is situated in the area of the Dukla Mountain Ghaut, on the Slovak-Polish border.

The current lookout tower was built in 1974 (on the occasion of the 30th anniversary of the fighting for Dukla) in place of the original wooden lookout tower from 1959. The lookout tower is 49 meters high.

Visitors can admire a beautiful view from the upper dome of the lookout tower, especially to a part of Slovak and Polish territory - the scene of the fighting during the Carpathian-Dukla operation. There is also a clear graphic depiction of the plan of the Red Army strike through the Carpathians to help Slovak National Uprising and combat situation in the area of Dukla Mountain Ghaut.

The interior of the lookout tower is decorated with works of art. There is also an exhibition room, in which are installed interesting period photographs, finds from the Duklian battlefield and last but not least, unique exhibits of heavy combat technology.

It is interesting that the lookout tower is built in close proximity to the original historic site, where he built an observation army gene. L. Svoboda - Commander of 1st Czechoslovak Army Corps in the USSR.
