The Świętokrzyskie Mountains, or Holy Cross Mountains are a mountain range in central Poland, located about 2h drive from Cracow, in the vicinity of the city of Kielce. The Świętokrzyskie Mountains are some of the oldest mountains in Europe, and the highest between The Sudet Mountains and the Ural Mountains. The mountain range comprises several lesser ranges, the highest of which is Łysogóry (the “Bald Mountains”). The two highest peaks are Łysica, 612 meters (2008 ft), and Łysa Góra, 593 meters (1946 ft).
From the early Middle Ages the mountains were a place of extensive copper and iron mining. Later they were also a significant site of limestone and red sandstone extraction. The central part of the mountains now contains the Świętokrzyski National Park.
The name “Holy Cross Mountains” refers to a Christian relic from a nearby Benedictine monastery on Łysa Góra, said to be a small piece of wood from the Cross on which Jesus Christ was crucified.
