Říp (455.5 meters above sea level) is the best-known Czech mountain and a constant symbol of our national history. The basic legend of the ancestor Čech´s arrival in a land relates to that mountain. The Romanesque rotunda was renewed in 1126 for the everlasting memory of the victory of Prince Soběslav I over the Roman Emperor Lothar near Chlumec. It is consecrated not only to St. Jiří patron of the Přemysl family, but also to St. Vojtěch - patron of the Czech land as well. Říp mountain was important at the time of the Czech national revival. In 1868 one of the foundation stones was removed fot the building of the National Theatre in Praguë. A traditional spring pilgrimage has taken place here since the 16th century. Inside the rotunda there was placed a sculpture of St. Jiří with a dragon by Czech sculptor Bernard Otto Seeling in 1870. Nowadays thr outstanding Czech sculptor Stanislav Hanzlík has taken part in decorating the interior of the chapel.
