The lookout platform is called Srdiečko and it immediately became a popular spot for tourists who visit the locality between Bachureň and Branisko Hills.

The village paid for the platform from a government subsidy.

Wooden entrance gates were added, welcoming tourists to Lačnovský Canyon and Zlá Diera.
