History of Tourism
The history of tourism in the Beskydy town of Krásná dates back to the dawn of the history of tourism in the Beskydy mountains. This is because the Lysá hora peak lies within its cadastre, which was always attractive. Less so for the local citizens due to its tough conditions. More so for tourists, who struggled for the peak of Lysá hora. It is the highest one! 1328 m above the sea level. There is only some sporadic news of a shed on the top, which stood there since 1880 in memory of a climb by Albrecht Habsburský, the lord of this country at that time – the land of Těšín. The memorial keeps reports of visits of Czech nationals to the Lysá hora mountain in August 1880, which confirms the existence of the shed, even with a keeper. It was the "Czech father – a tourist in canonical dress" Jan Evangelista Ježíšek from nearby Domaslovice with his fellows, who wandered along the Ropice edge to Bílý Kříž and to the Lysá hora peak. They stated then that the view was beautiful, comparing it with the view from Radhošť. One of the less recognized roots of tourism comprised of clerical processions. But the procession to the Prašivá peak in the immediate vicinity of Krásná was definitely one. The small church in Prašivá was built in 1640, in the re-catholicization period. Believers from distant areas headed to it – and who was not one at that time?
