The history of Roztoky u Jilemnice goes back to early Christianity when, according to a legend, a sturdy castle called Prklin used to stand here. It was the property of a local governor from the Czech tribe of Charvats and surrounded by a palisade. Unfortunately, no traces of the castle are left except for a stone cross which is linked to two legends. According to the first, a young noblewoman called Zdislava died here after falling off a horse on her way to the castle to see her friend. According to the second legend, the cross was built on the site where a young girl fell out of a castle window.
