Long Description:
Massive wooden orthodox cross located on the edge of the forest.

"The cross commemorates the fallen of 1813, when the anti-Napoleonic coalition and the French army clashed near Dresden, Chlumec and Leipzig. Severely wounded from the ranks of the Tsarist army were transported to Cítolib and the surrounding area, where military infirmaries were established. Due to the high mortality, which was caused by the spread of infectious diseases, a mass grave was created here, where 300 soldiers were buried."
