History of the Žalý Lookout Tower


The lookout tower and the first inn were built on the top of the "Přední Žalý" mountain by order of Count Jan Harrach. The inn was completed in 1890, the lookout tower two years later. The stone lookout tower stands in its original form on the top of Žalý Mountain to this day. The original inn - a timbered wooden building, but burned down at the turn of the 19th and 20th centuries. It was replaced by a light prefabricated wooden building, which was originally part of the Provincial Jubilee Exhibition. The building stood here until World War II, when it was destroyed during the occupation. Since then, only the foundations of the original building have stood here, and tradition has been waiting for its rebirth, which it saw in 2008.
