Nesteticka hora Look-Out Tower
4 km from the town of Neveklov, at the altitude of 536 m you may find a concrete view tower with the height of 12m. You can get to the view platform after ascending 48 stairs.

This view tower was built as a monument of the subjects´ revolt on the Konopište manor in 1627, which was bloodily suppressed. The citizens of Neveklov and surrounding villages had merit of building the view tower, which was opened on August the 18th 1927 with the participation of around 20.000 people. Unfortunately the monument along with the view tower are not being maintained currently.
