Pustevny - Rožnov pod Radhoštěm

Cyrilka viewing gazebo

Cyrilka is an observation arbour located on the top of the Podstupně rock above the Pustevny Mountains. Cyrilka is a wooden polygonal structure with a low bulbous roof. There is a wooden, painted panoramic view map in the gazebo. The wooden map has recently been replaced by a metal one, which, although it has detracted a little from the beauty, has added to its durability and longevity. The structure dates back to 1893 and was built by the Radhošt’ Podhorská unity. From Cyrilka you can see the Pustevny Mountains, the Radhošt’ Beskydy Mountains, especially Kněhyni, Čertův Mlýn and Lysá hora. There is also a view of Frenštát pod Radhoštěm and Trojanovice, Palkovické hůrky, Štramberská Trúba. The name Cyrilka also raises the question of whether there is a colleague named Metodějka anywhere in the area. Unfortunately, it has to be stated that there was, on the nearby Okrúhlý hill.
