[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The water chapel is situated on the western slope of Hostýn Hill. The original chapel around the water springs was built in 1658 by Jan Rottal. The chapel was enlarged in 1700 and extensive reconstruction was carried out in 1748, when a large cellar with several water outlets was built under the chapel. The spring has reported miraculous healing effects .

Vodní kaple se nachází na západním úbočí vrchu Hostýn. Původní kapličku kolem vodního pramene nechal zbudovat roku 1658 Jan Rottal. Kaplička v roce 1700 rozšířena a v roce 1748 realizována rozsáhlá přestavba, kdy pod kaplí bylo vybudováno rozsáhlé sklepení s několika výtoky vody. Pramen má údajně zázračné uzdravující účinky.
