On Thursday, June 14, Prague, inaugurated the new observation tower Doubravka, created by the architect Martin Rajniš. It is located in the Čihadla forest park, near Černý Most.
It is the first public observation tower in the capital since 1992, when the Žižkov transmitter was completed.
The name of the observation tower was chosen by its designer Prof. Martin Rajniš with his team at Huť architecture; he has imprinted on it a distinctive and original structure dominated by three massive legs 98 steps will lead up to the top of the tower with its viewing platform 20 meters up.
The hallmark of Huť architecture has been projected into the form of a triangular pyramid and into the material chosen. It is dominated by easily renewable but durable acacia wood (over 5.5 km of trunk-lengths), supplemented with elements made of oak, larch and steel.
The main tower will reach up 23.5 metres thanks to the weather vane, the construction cost almost 3 million crowns. The tower will be open all year round, free of charge.
The observation tower will be one of the icons of this city district, at the same time rendering the whole Čihadla site more attractive to the public.
