Vyšní Kamenitý - Bílý Kříž

Bell tower Bilý Kříž

The wooden bell tower on the Beskydy Bílý Kříž (White Cross), below the peak of Súlov, originally stood next to an old wooden tavern that provided simple hospitality in this part of the mountains in the second third of the 19th century. With the development of tourism in the late 19th century, the bell tower became a welcome tourist attraction, and for 20 krejcars, anyone could ring its bell at any time. However, with the construction of the new Bílý Kříž Hotel in 1924, the bell tower took its own life. A new wooden bell tower was built near the hotel, but not a copy of the old one. Unfortunately, it is now a dilapidated structure.
