The interesting red-brick shrine in the main street of Kuznica is dedicated to St Anthony and was erected to commemorate the flooding of the village by the sea waves in the years 1872, 1874, 1879, 1902 and 1914. The Hel Peninsula is extremely narrow here so floodings were common. In the period between the two World Wars the shrine bells would warn the villagers of the coming danger.
