A road in the fields between Tišnov and Jamný in the Brno region is newly decorated with an altar to St. Barbara created by amateur blacksmith Radim Tichý.

The roadside altar stands on a stone pedestal, cut and shaped from a rock by Tichý. The dedication to St. Barbara is related to the history of mining in this area. The altar is made of stainless steel and can be opened and closed by passers-by.
