Calvary - Ostrá u Úštěka

A significant landmark near Úštěk is the Calvary hill near the village of Ostré.

The unmistakable panorama consists of three chapels from the years 1703-1707, the authorship of which is attributed to the Litoměřice architect Ottaviano Broggio. In the middle is the chapel of the Holy Sepulcher, on the sides are the chapels of the Exaltation and the Finding of True Cross. A wide stone staircase with statues leads to the chapels. The area on the top of Kalvárie has recently been repaired and renovated thanks to a civic association, to which it was lent by the deanery in Úštěk. In recent years, the devotion of the Stations of the Cross has been held here on Good Friday with the participation of the Bishop of Litoměřice.

From Calvary is a wonderful view of the surroundings. The place lies at an altitude of 398 meters and you can see the town of Úštěk, Mount Říp, Sedlo or even the more distant peaks of the Central Bohemian Uplands.

It is possible to go to the top by a nice walking trip from Úštěk. From the city center, follow the red tourist route, at the Lukovsko crossroads switch to the yellow tourist line, which will take us past the interesting rock structure Monkey Head to Calvary. The second option is to park near the Calvary in a parking lot and ascend only the hill itself.
