Photographer's Note

Unusual mobile tower ( GSM Base Transceiver Station). Lower part of the tower (with metal stairs leading to it) serves as a public observation deck for visitors of Aukstaitija National Park offering views of nearby lakes. There are several interconnected lakes surrounding the tower - Ukojas, Linkmenas, Pakasas.
The tower was constructed in 2004. Height - 60 meters (70 with antennas). Visitor platform is located at a height of 30.5 meters, it's floor surface - 36 square meters. Total weight of the structure is 29221 kg. Tower is designed to withstand wind of up to 32 m/s.

While many large TV towers located in big cities are open to the public, it's the first time I saw GSM tower in countryside equipped with observation deck.
