Attraction details

Święty Krzyż

The symbol of the Świętokrzyskie Mountains, the peak of the Łysa Góra (whose name literally translates into English as the Bald Mountain, 594 m a.s.l.), located in the eastern part of the Łysogóry Range, within the Świętokrzyski National Park.

A true pearl of this place is the Post-Benedictine monastery called Święty Krzyż (Holy Cross) from the 12th century, nowadays, housing the Museum of the Missionary Oblates of Mary Immaculate as well as the Natural Science and Forest Museum of the Świętokrzyski National Park. On the top of the mountain, you’ll find a viewpoint presenting you with a stone run, thus, a rock landform typical for the Świętokrzyskie Mountains, as well as with remains of a pagan cult embankment and the Radio-Television Broadcasting Tower Świety Krzyż (Holy Cross), being 157 m high. By the way, the name Święty Krzyż, as the monastery is called and as the Łysa Góra used to be called some time ago, refers to the name of the whole mountain range since Świętokrzyskie Mountains translate into English as the Holy Cross Mountains.
