Description

Stone in the outer wall of the church tower said to be the tombstone of the grave of the legendary prince Jaromar I (died ca. 1218) of even a priest of the Svantevit Temple near Cape Arkona (before 1168). However, it is also assumed that the stone has been re-used and that it shows a monk.
