Rtyně in Podkrkonoší is a small town located just a short distance from the Jestřebí mountains. The main reason to stop here, at least for a short walk, is the unique wooden bell tower built at the end of the 16th century. In addition, there is also a local museum and nice views of the Giant Mountains.

The interior of the wooden belfry in Rtyn

The wooden bell tower is closed most of the day. But before the mass, the bells are rung here, so it is possible to take a look inside. You will be surprised by the narrow and large steep stairs leading up to the upper part of the bell tower.

View of the Giant Mountains

From the cemetery there is also a nice view of the Giant Mountains, including the highest mountain of the mountain range and the entire Czech Republic – Sněžka
