Photographer's Note

Czantoria Wielka or Wielka Czantoria is a mountain on the border of Poland (Silesian Voivodeship, Cieszyn County) and the Czech Republic (Moravian-Silesian Region, Frędek-Místek District), in the Silesian Beskids mountain range and historical region of Cieszyn Silesia. It reaches a height of 995 meters. Parts of the mountain on both sides are designated a protected area.

It is distinct for its steep slopes in the east and the west. Mostly coniferous trees grow on its slopes. It is the largest peak of the Czech part of the Silesian Beskids.

In 1965-1967 a chairlift was constructed on the Polish side, it has been renovated several times since. Reaching the mountain via chairlift takes roughly 6 minutes. The mountain can be hiked from both sides of the border, though the Polish side offers easier access to the summit from Ustroń. The Knight's hiking trail from the Czech side runs through the village of Nędek (Nydek). (wiki)
