The Heroes' Cross is a monument built on Caraiman Peak at an altitude of 2,291 m (7,516 ft), in the Bucegi Mountains of the Southern Carpathians, Romania. The name of the monument is "The Heroes' Cross", but it is popularly known as the "Cross on Caraiman". The Heroes' Cross was built between 1926 and 1928 in the memory of the railway heroes who died on duty in World War I fighting against the armies of the Central Powers. The cross was erected at the initiative of Marie of Edinburgh and King Ferdinand of Romania in order to be seen from a large distance as possible. The overall project was developed by Romanian architects Georges Cristinel and Constantin Procopiu. More info here.
