The peak of the mountain Velký Polom (Big Polom) is part of the ridge of the Beskydy mountains which forms the border between the Czech Republic and Slovakia. It is a favorite place of hikers who are catered for by three tourist lodges.
The view of both the Slovak and Czech side of the mountains is enhanced by a new look-out tower, 'Tetřev (Grouse)', which is part of a hotel and stands in the place of the old chalet which included a water tower from the early 20th century. It was this water tower that became the basis for the ten-meter-high observation tower.
In winter, there are maintained slopes in the area of 'Severka' (the North Star) and the whole ridge is connected by one of the most beautiful cross-country skiing trails that will lead you to 'Bílý Kříž' (the White Cross).
