Nowadays arguably one of the most atheist countries in Europe, the Czech Republic used to be an important religious centre and crossroad in the past. Apart from Catholic and Protestant Christian monuments and sights, there are also many places connected with Jewish culture and religion.
The most significant and famous monuments have been included in the UNESCO list of World Heritage sites (Kutná Hora, the Pilgrimage Church of St John of Nepomuk at Zelená Hora, the Holy Trinity Column in Olomouc, the Jewish Quarter and the St Procopius’ Basilica in Třebíč…).
Other important pilgrimage sites (e.g. Svatá hora u Příbrami) are listed as national monuments. The countryside is covered by thousands of gorgeous baroque churches and other smaller religious objects. There are also many long lost Jewish cemeteries. And finally, the city of Prague is known as the “city of a hundred steeples” originating in all periods of history. Our itineraries cover also the neighbouring countries, for example Poland with the Monastery of Jasna Góra in Częstochowa, which is the third-largest Catholic pilgrimage site in the world.
