Observation tower „Tetřev“
On November 23, 2011, the “Tetřev” lookout tower was opened, not far from the former mountain hotel Tetřev, on the Velký Polom mountain. The history continues, actually there was original lookout tower here build already in 1924, but during the past this building was used as cattle-shed. Such use left unfortunately its footsteps and resulted in the decay of the building over decades.
From the architectural and historical point of view, the new building stays on four original stone pillars that form a compact whole with the new structure.
Visitors can admire the views of the surrounding mountain ridges and valleys of the Moravian-Silesian Beskydy. Moreover, an exhibition located in the tower rooms shows the local flora and fauna.
The tower is open to the public throughout the year. Just next door there is a mountain cottage “Kamenná chata”, where you can eat well and relax.
