As explained by the mayor of Rogaška Slatina Branko Kidrič, the tower would attract a number of families, and curious visitors. The project would cost more than two million euro.
It is not known yet how they intend to provide the necessary funds, but most likely they would allocate them from the municipal budget during the next four or five years, as for the project Vrelec Business centre.
The mayor explained that the new observation tower would aid the promotion of the tourist destination at home and abroad, and would also increase the attendance to the other cultural and tourist sights of Rogaška Slatina.
