Mountain village with a wooden mountain of the same name above it (1065m). On the southern slope is the Stožecká skála nature reserve, with a granite cliff covered with fir and beech trees and fine views from the top. Below the cliff stands a wooden Lady chapel from the first of the 19th century, folk carvings. The remnants of stone tower closeby might have been a medieva gurd castle.
