Sacred Mountain

The stories behind Mount Sleza may have been brought about by ancient heathen tribes who once lived there and considered it to be a sacred place. It has been said through stories that the Sudetes mountain range was formed when Lucifer was cast out of Heaven and sent to Hell. The entrance into Hell was said to be located in the area where the mountain range stands.

When Lucifer went inside the entrance going into Hell, the angels from Heaven then covered up the entrance by piling up rocks and dirt on top of it. This was said to have formed the Sudetes mountain range of today.
