The High Tatras is widely seen as Slovakia's national treasure, and many people are sensitive about any interference with them. So it comes as no surprise that the construction of a new attraction, the future lookout tower in Štrbské Pleso, is facing contradictory reactions, Profit magazine reported.
The 53-metre-high and 18-metre-wide construction is being constructed in a location under third-level protection.
The public, as well as the councillors in Štrba, under whose administration Štrbské Pleso falls, learned about the project only after the foundations of the new construction began. A petition was even launched to stop the works.
