The building of the Jested tower with a hotel and restaurant with panoramic views on the Jizera mountains, is a unique piece of architecture. It was built in the second half of the 1960s as designed by architect K. Hubacek who received the Perret’s Prize of the International Union of Architects for it. It is a good place for a family trip to visit both in a summer time as well as in winter. There are usually very good snow conditions for winter skiing.
