There is a 29 m-high lookout tower on the mountain and mountain hut on the Czech side of the mountain.The mountain hut was constructed in 1904 by the German tourist association Beskidenverein, and was named Erzherzogin Isabella Schutzhaus in honor of Archduchess Isabella of Austria. In 1920 the new border between the states of Poland and Czechoslovakia was established running across the mountain . After World War II and expropriation of German property, the hut was nationalized by the Czechoslovak government. A smaller mountain hut was built on the Polish side in 1962.

  • The ascent of this hill from Ustrona is terrible on all paths. Anyway I recommend to go along the blue trail that runs through the woods and there is a minimum of tourists. Unlike the red, which runs along the slope and ends at the cable car station. It is very violent and there is a knowledge of more tourists.

  • Great location. Long entry allows a little breath and admire the magnificent views. At the very top of the possibility to take advantage of the sun loungers, tasty gastronomy, tobogveways and Sokolarnia. It is worth to take the card of a large family, because there are discounts on the queue.
