The observation tower at Stratenec

Nature Interest, Monumnet, Architecture

Javorník ridge is a picturesque area on the border between Slovakia and the Czech Republic. At the deforested area of the main ridge of Javorníky stretches a flat top "Stratenec". It is surrounded by a distinctive Wallachian landscape with scattered settlements, meadows, pastures and forests. Javorníky mountains are surrounded by a lovely nature. Climb up the observation tower Stratenec and praise the artist who created this beautiful place.

ABOUT THE TOWER

On the top of the westernmost hill of Javorník, Stratenec, at an altitude of 1,055 meters above sea level stands a wooden observation tower. The tower was built under the project "Tourist route Javorník" which involved villages of Papradno and Karolinka. The tower on Stratenec is the highest observation tower in Javorníky, and was opened to the public in 2008. The tower is 8 meters high and has a viewing platform at the height of 5 meters. You can get there climbing up 22 steep stairs without railings. The tower is covered by a tent-like shingle roof. The tower has several useful friends - a shelter with tables and benches, information boards and a map. Not far away from the tower visitors can stumble upon a monument "Three crosses" dedicated to the memory of three soldiers who helped with the liberation of Veľké Karlovice in the WW II.

From the tower you can admire Slovak and also Moravian nature. To the north you can enjoy viewing deforested mountain ridges of Stratenec, Hontín-Vsetín highlands and the Moravian-Silesian Beskids on the Moravian side and Javorníky, Strážov mountains, Súľovské rocks and Malá Fatra on the Slovak side.

The observation tower is freely accessible all year round. You can reach it from several different directions – from the recreation center Kohútka - Portáš as well as Kasárne or the village of Papradno-Podjavorník or from Veľké  Karlovice and Malé Karlovice.

FIELDS IN KRIŽOVEC

Križovec is a small valley in Papradno. It’s narrow and enclosed by two hills – Dúbrava and Tisová. In the village of Križovec there are several fields, one next to the other. Each field has its owner and so we know that the first belongs to Pičurík, the second to Kokocík, the third is Prdzík’s, fourth belongs to Zakakan and the fifth one is owned by Zasralík. The one behind the bush is Serík’s. These are the names of fields decorating Križovec valley.
