Stations of the Cross in Horní Lomna (Upper Lomna)
The peculiarity of this example of the Stations of the Cross is that is leads from the church of the Holy Cross in Horní Lomna and takes pilgrims through the local woods. The path that passes through a forest ravine and ends at the cemetery was built by the Carmelite order who were active in Horní Lomna in the late 20th century.
The stone was quarried in the nearby river and the inscriptions and images were created in Rome. The Stations of the Cross consists of fourteen wooden crosses and banners on the individual illustrations are in Polish. It was opened in 1995 when the faithful commemorated the centenary of the foundation of the local church.
There has been a pilgrimage site in Horní Lomná since the 19th century when the faithful erected a cross at the spring to Our Lady of Lourdes. The local water is considered miraculous because after a pilgrimage, the faithful visited the spring and ended a cholera epidemic in Jablunkov. The pilgrimage site was also visited by the Bulgarian Tsar Ferdinand I, the Bulgarian.
