Hill of Three Crosses

Viewpoint in Kazimierz Dolny

Uphill from the parish church, a path to the right leads to the Hill of Three Crosses, where three large crosses stand to commemorate victims of the plagues that swept through the town in the 18th century. There's some historical debate about the relationship between the crosses and the epidemics, as some historians believe the site was referred to as 'hill of crosses’ long before the plagues. Whatever the origin of the name, the hill affords sensational views.
