In the vicinity of the Russian Chapel and the Mihov dom Mountain Hut there is a large wooden Russian Cross just by the road, next to a stone wall. The cross was commissioned by an Austrian officer as a reminder and a memory of war. On it there is a bronze plaque with a poem by the Austrian poet Peter Rosegger which translates roughly like this:

To the North
Or to the South
Each road
Leads to the finish line.

To the war
Or to the peace
Only God’s will
Will prevail.
