A watchtower in ancient times was a fortified defensive construction located mostly in places that needed to be protected, for example, in the vicinity of the borders. Usually, it was a wooden building behind a wooden pallisade located near the large courtyard surrounded by stables.
Today, we can usually find the scouts' watchtowers and sailing or fishing stations. A scouts watchtower is simply a scouts base composed mostly of a campsite and sometimes cabins. Of course, scout camps are organized in such places.
A sailing station is usually small tourist shelter located by the water near the busy waterways. It consists of accommodation rooms, catering and sanitary facilities and possibly the room for boats and canoes. Due to its location and aim, the sailing stations are naturally equipped with platforms allowing to berth the boats. Therefore, this type of stations, usually located by the lakes and canals, are seasonal facilities.
