At the northern edge of Košice on Hradová hill (castle hill), a 21-m high watchtower has jutted out above the city since 1986. Once you overcome the 99 steps, you will be rewarded with a truly inspiring panorama of the whole of Košice. The remains of the Medieval castle in the locality of Hradová at the Watchtower and the surrounding forest park are ideal places for a picnic and a barbeque. In the surrounding area there are even specially designated sites for making fires.
