CZ: Divisov – Lbosin: Spulka Observation Tower and Bird’s Trail
Lbosin by Divisov is perfectly ready. Right after you enter the town, there is a parking lot. The second parking lot is several hundred meters further. Everything is marked with direction boards. You simply cannot miss the place from where you get on the Bird’s Trail . It is about a kilometer away on Brezak Hll (533 meters). On its top, there is a steel construction that makes an observation tower. The building is a nice combination of spruce and larch wood. The aim of the architect worked out well, the building fits great into the landscape.
When we overcome easy hill, we leave asphalt road and join a field road which continues to a forest road. There are infoboards along the way. On them are quizzes on selected birds. Certainly take a break at some of the resting places. Children will focus your attention on, for example, an artificial pond (Brcalnik pond) with a water goblin. Children can borrow a twig and try to catch some fish. The water goblin is, however, not the only wooden fairy tale statue there….
The façade of the Spulka observation tower is made of steel tube. Around it goes a steel staircase up to the observation platform in 30 meters. The platform’s diameter is only around 6 meters. There you can easily see Benesovsko region, Kutnohorsko region and Posazavi region. In case of good visibility you can see even the Krkonose and its Snezka. Unfortunately, we were not lucky. While looking down you will quickly realize what is the reason for stone pavement around the tower. It symbolizes the CHOPOS microregion. Wooden pillars around the construction complete the shape of a reel.
The observation tower is freely accessible. However, some should consider throwing several coins into a box. Indeed, there are cameras. You can buy a tourist stamp with a picture of the Spulka observation tower in a stand with refreshments. Since the tower is accessible also via a bicycle route, you can park your bicycle safely there. Country chronicle – consists of boards with the names of clubs, associations, and people who contributed to realization of the construction. With the infobards it makes a tasty entrée to the observation tower.
