A new lookout tower was built on Holý Diel Hill. A walk up the calvary road on top of the hill offers a view of the town and the surrounding mountains, the regional daily My Kysuce wrote.

The lookout tower marks the 15th stop of the calvary.

“We as believers trust in the Resurrection,” Mayor Jozef Grapa said, as quoted by My Kysuce. “And from the lookout tower, we have wide views as a clear future for believers that add beautiful views to our town,” mayor continues.

Message for future generations

“Calvary is quite steep and so at every stop, there will be benches,” Jozef Grapa explained, as quoted by My Kysuce. “People will have a chance to climb the individual stop, rest, pray and continue,” he noted.

The lookout tower itself is divided into several platforms. On the first floor, there is a platform, where information about Krásno nad Kysucou could be found.
