The construction of a new 35.73 metre lookout tower with seven floors will start above Levoča in the spring. The project, commissioned by the Association of Tourism, will cost €165,000.

It will rise at an altitude of 1,250 metres on the southern peak of Javorina, known among the locals as Marčulina.

“This tower will be among the top 10 lookout towers in Slovakia,” said Ernest Rusnák of the association, as quoted by the SITA newswire. He came up with the idea for the construction.
