Observation tower on the Neštětická mountain off Neveklov

Neštětická mountain near Neveklov is a site of an unusual concrete observation tower. It was opened on 18 August 1927 as a memorial of a peasant revolt, which took place in the region in 1627 under the leadership of Adam Hodějovský. Neštětická hora was the site of the peasants' defeat by a better armed army. The structure, with the observation deck at a height of 12 metres, is very unusual. But, unfortunately, it is unmaintained and rather dilapidated. On a better note, the forest blocking the view from the tower has recently been cut down and safety rails have been installed on the deck. The tower is freely accessible. Let us hope that this unique memorial will be renovated. At the toe of the Neštětická mountain, there is a little village of Chvojínek with a charming St. Wenceslaus church built in mid-13th century in the Gothic style. It stands on a small hill, surrounded by a picturesque circular cemetery.
