The Havířská bouda - Kaňk lookout tower

The Havířská bouda - Kaňk lookout tower is one of the barrier-free lookout towers in the Czech Republic. The plan to build a 30-meter tower on Kaňk Hill was born in the head of the builder Alois Holík, but it was finally realized by his son Michal in 2013. It took the locals a while to get used to the new landmark of Central Bohemia, but today it is a popular tip for a trip.
