The iron cross on top of Giewont is 15 meters high and weighs 1,819 kilograms. The cross was installed on August 19, 1901 to celebrate the 1900th birthday of Jesus Christ. Thanks to this, the peak of Giewont is extremely dangerous during a storm. Tourists and pilgrims have been struck by lightning many times.
