Barborka - wooden lookout tower


The nearly 14 metre high wooden observation tower near the town of Horní Raškovice was built and opened to the public in 2004. The observation tower is situated near the Raškovice forest and in the interesting natural area of the former Raškovice quarry. Visitors can use two lookout platforms to view the surrounding landscape; 47 stairs lead to the upper platform at the height of 10 metres. The tower offers views of the Železné Mts., the peaks of the Krkonoše and Orlické Mts., and the Polabí (Elbe River basin).
