Viewing platform

At the tip of the conglomerate rock towering high above the Kokra River, there is a viewing platform that connects to the city wall. Its location is no coincidence, as it symbolizes the southernmost defense tower which fell into the depths because of the fragile rock it was standing on. If you stand on the platform today and watch the two rivers flow, observe the hustle and bustle of the cars and factories and see the hill of Šmarjetna gora in front of you, you can let your imagination wander into the past.
