This chapel lies on the right-hand side of the road from Cerny Dul to Janske Lazne, some 2 km above Cerny Dul. After World War Two it became dilapidated and the devastation continued until a reconstruction in the late 1990’s which took six years to complete. Before the new consecration the problem had to be resolved of who the chapel should be dedicated to, as no information was available from any resources. Eventually, with respect to the fact that Cerny Dul had been established as a miners’ settlement, the chapel was dedicated to St. Barbara, the patron saint of miners.
