At Betty´s Maple- to the north of Javorina there is the peak of the range described as At Betty´s Marple (828m).
The legend recorded in 1951 by František Zavadil, a local chronicler, is connected with this place: In the last century a brave girl lived in Strání. Her name was Betty. As a herder she drove cows to pasture but she also took care of sheep, mainly in forests around Javorina. She slept in forests at summer nights. She took food for a week and returned home only when she was running out of it. Her typical meal was bread and cheese. She was not missing anything besides drinkable water. And this became fatal to her. Once when she was eating her daily portion of bread and cheese, a bite got stuck in her dry throat and the girl chocked to death. After several days she was found at her most favourite place, near a maple tree. Thus, today the place is called At Betty´s Maple.
Water spring (called in the local dialect Cicurek) - it is mountain water which springs to surface in Květná. This water is clean and really delicious, and it is probably the reason why it is so popular among mothers who come here with bottles to take water for their children.

Janáček´s spring (Březová “sour” spring water) - a spring of ferric water located between Strání and Březová villages.

The Květná Moravian Glassworks – the beginning of glass production in Květná is connected with the noble house of Lichtenstein.
