Places Around

The observation tower Hrajky

The observation tower Hrajky

At a sacred place near Turá Lúka stands the observation tower Hrajky. The silent atmosphere coming from the surrounding hills is seldom cut by the noise of cars driving on the near road. From the observation tower you can enjoy the silhouette of large hills. At the sunset, when the sky changes color into yellow and purple, the place becomes a quite place suitable for relaxation and meditation. Let yourself immerse into surrounding cornfields, rounded hills and small houses. Only noise from passing cars will disturb this harmonic moment of peace.
