Back in the summer of 2020, the controversial project of building a sightseeing tower went into motion. The project was put forward by a company known as High Tatras Tower, the Korzár regional daily reported.
The tourist attraction reaches more than 50 meters in height and the people of the Tatras are not happy about it. At the beginning, as many as 6,000 activists signed a petition in protest. The original plans were to build a hotel in the spot in which the tower currently stands.
According to Pavol Majko, director of the Tatra National Park (TANAP), the building is not a problem and did not call for the removal of any trees, Korzár reported.
