Pagan sacred mountains of Łysiec Region - Zabytek.pl

Pagan sacred mountains of Łysiec Region

Welcome to the route leading through sacred pagan mountains, situated in the area of the mountain Łysa Góra - the most known of them. We present pre-Christian places of worship and rites and rituals of Slavs from a period before the formation and Christianisation of the Polish state.

In beliefs of ancient Slavs, mountains occupied a very special place. They aroused fear and admiration, were identified with homes of gods, and were a suitable place of meeting with them. Strange atmospheric phenomena, often occurring in this area, reinforced this belief. Hence many of often ambiguous traces of human activity discovered on the summits of the mountains dominating in the surrounding landscape were considered to be remnants of past places of worship, magical practices and rituals.
