Javorník is a mountain (1,089 m) in the Šumava mountains (Bohemian Forest). It towers above the village with of same name about 6 km north of the small town Stachy.
The slope of the mountain above the village is a sought-after place for ski schools due to the moderate slope with ski-trail and the village is a well-known winter holiday centre.
On the top there is an observation tower named after the writer Karel Klostermann. It was built in 1938 and a new higher part was added in 2003. There are beautiful views of the mountains and a nice circular view from the top.
The sea of stones can be found on the northern slope. The small chapel of St. Anthony of Padua with the circular layout stands above the village near the ski-slope. It originates from 1939. In the park in the village there is a statue of Karel Klostermann.
The instructional trail with two circular trails (7 and 11 km) starts near the observation tower on the peak.
The interesting fact is, that the borderline of the former Protectorate of Bohemia and Moravia led near the top of Javorník. This mountain was the highest peak of Bohemia at that time after the borderland called Sudety was annexed to Germany in 1939.
The yellow and blue marked tourist paths run to the top from the village Javorník (about 2 km).
