A new lookout tower in the compound close to Gombasecká cave, near Rožňava, offers a completely different view of the compound. It was a bell tower before it underwent reconstruction.
Gombasecká cave belongs among six accessible caves in the Košice region, enlisted on the UNESCO list. Lenka Vargová Jurková, director of Košice Region Tourism, said that they have succeeded in making the compound more attractive for tourists every year thanks to an enthusiastic citizens’ association and the support of the self-governing region.
“Besides widening the function of the bell tower into the lookout tower, we started construction of the fountain that will serve as a source of drinking water,” said Endre Szabó, administrator of Gombasek compound, as quoted by the TASR newswire.
