Lookout tower Dukla Pass

The Dukla Pass lookout tower. In the area of the Dukla Pass on the Slovak-Polish border, there is a lookout tower overlooking a wide area of Slovak and Polish territory – the scene of heavy fights of the WWII (the Battle of Dukla Pass). The tower was opened to the public in 1974 on the occasion of the 30th anniversary of the Battle of Dukla Pass. It is 49 m high and was built on the site of the original wooden lookout tower from 1959 near the temporary observatory of the commander of the 1st Czechoslovak Army Corps. The interior of the tower is full of works of art, i.e. A. Račka’s “Welcoming the Liberators” (sculpture), the figural composition “Fighting Together” by J. Koreň and the sculpture “I Regret” by J. Kulich. The exterior of the tower is complemented by the Linden Branch – a symbol of Slavic closeness by sculptor F. Patočka.
