Maister’s Viewing Tower

Zavrh 97, 2232 Voličina ( Map ) ( Virtual tour)

Description

In 1963, the local people erected a wooden tower on Zavrh, which was 24 metres high, and named it after General Rudolf Maister. On the same spot today stands the 17 metre high metal viewing tower, which, when the weather is fine, offers fantastic views of Pohorje, Kozjak, Boč, Donačka gora, neighbouring Croatia and even the plains of Hungary. In the midst of the settlement proudly stands Stupica’s villa, in which the general occasionally spent some time resting. In his memory, and also that of his fighters, a special exhibition was set up in the villa several years ago.
