Góra Trzech Krzyży overlooking Kazimierz Dolny, Poland.
These three crosses stand atop a hill in the small Polish town of Kazimierz Dolny. Quietly overlooking the Vistula River, Kazimierz Dolny is a surviving medieval town (a rare sight in Poland) that has long been known as an artist’s weekend getaway. To get an amazing view of the town, river, and surrounding countryside, one can climb up the small mountain, at the top of which stands these three simple wooden crosses. Some believe the crosses were erected in response to the terrible cholera epidemic in the 1700s, though it seems this was a holy spot long before the plague, and relics have been found in the site that long pre-date the epidemic. Regardless of the origins of the crosses, the Góra Trzech Krzyży (Hill of Three Crosses in Polish), creates a gorgeous painting of the Polish countryside!
