Lookout tower Modrá

In Modrá u Velehrad you will find not only the well-known Archeological Open-air museum or a replica of the Great Moravian Church, but also a lookout tower with a view of the surrounding area. A simple wooden construction of a small municipal lookout tower was built over the village of Modrá in the Uherské Hradiště region in one day in 1999. The Židoviny lookout tower in Modrá was built by local scouts at the suggestion of the mayor Mr. Miroslav Kovářík. However, over the years it had to be removed due to climatic conditions. In its place, a new wooden lookout tower of Židoviny in Modrá with a height of 12 metres was opened to the public in spring 2014. After climbing the access ladders, you will have a view of the Vizovice Hills, the Zlín Highlands, the White Carpathians, the Chřiby Mountains, the Pálava Mountains and the Hostýn Hills. It is part of the Modřansko nature trail. It is accessible all year round free of charge.
