How to get
The bell was cast in the 17th century by Daniel Thiem. Originally it was supposed to hang in the bell tower in Jaroslaw, but it cracked and was never used. Since 1972 it has adorned this small romantic place, which is rarely visited by tourists.
According to legend, it grants wishes, but you have to make some effort and perform a ritual beforehand. Instructions for use can be found in our detailed description.
There is a lot of cobblestones in and around the Old Town. People with walking difficulties (wheelchair, rollator) do not have it so easy here and should ask for a supporting hand.
