Hus hill lies at the foot of the Ore Mountains, on the western edge of Běhánky. You can find a monument to Jan Hus at its peak, whose construction was initiated immediately after the Second World War by the last democratically-elected mayor of Běhánky, Antonín Zuna. The monument was created by a former French POW, Jerome Brodet, who married a Czech girl. The ceremonial unveiling was attended by legionnaires, Sokols, members of the Workers' physical education union, firemen and all other democratic societies and institutions from afar. When, in 1948, democratic progress in Czechoslovakia was forcibly terminated, the sculptor Brodet and his family left for France and the monument fell into oblivion.
The change came only after November 1989, when the sculptor František Rabel of Teplice, created a new relief. Part of the monument was a metal cup, but it was stolen. The monument was re-unveiled on the anniversary of Jan Hus' martyrdom on 5 July 1993.
Hus hill in Dubí is called Kudrák, and many traditional Dubí festivities take place in the field ‘below Kudrák’. On 30 April, for example, they burn effigies of witches; and in mid-May, Dubí stagecoach starts here, on a day devoted to the Wild West and Native American Indians.
