Detailed route description

St. John’s Lookout Tower rises above the village of Liptovský Ján and offers views of the entire village and wide surroundings. The lookout tower is wooden, its shape and used materials are based on traditional Slovak architecture. Located in Stráne above the cemetery below Kameničná Hill (829 m above sea level).

You can reach it directly from the village or from the thermal spring area Teplica (via the Štiavnica brook). There is a simple walkway leading to the observation tower, which starts from the nearest road near the cemetery, where it is possible to park but in limited mode. The route is unpretentious with minimal climb. It is therefore suitable for both children and seniors.
