Visit Herrnhut, a small town in the region of Saxony (Sachsen), in Germany. In the 18th century, Herrnhut gave birth to the Moravian spiritual renewal and prayer/ missions movement under Count Nicolaus Ludwig Von Zinzendorf (1700-1760). It remains a haven for Christian pilgrims as well as being the world headquarters of the Moravian Church.
The reform movement of the end of the 14th century and the beginning of the 15th century is related to the work of Master Jan Hus, to his preaching, university and writing activities. After his martyr’s death in Constance in 1415, the principles of his teaching gained growing support in Bohemia.
Prague, the capital of the Czech Republic and the then-Czech Kingdom, became a centre of reformation one hundred years before the European reformations. The Wittenberg or Lutheran reformation resounded amongst the Czech utraquists, too; and there was a German-speaking Lutheran community established as well.
Visit to the picturesque medieval town, which was the center and military fortress of the Hussite revolution. The name was derived from Mount Tabor in Galilee, traditionally associated with the place where Jesus revealed His divine nature to the Apostles. Thanks to its rich history, architectural monuments and attractive countryside location, Tábor (today the second largest town in South Bohemia) is one of the Czech Republic’s most popular tourist destinations.
The story of roots of Czech Reformation will take us to the region of South Bohemia which has been considered the cradle of the Reformation and the Hussite movement throughout the ages. It was here that the reformer Jan Hus, warrior Jan Žižka, and Petr Chelčický, whose thoughts were later drawn upon by the Moravian Brethren (Unitas Fratrum), were all born. In South Bohemia there are a number of places that are more or less connected with reform movement.
The story of Kralice Bible will takes us to village of Kralice nad Oslavou and nearby Náměšť nad Oslavou in Vysočina region. We will take advantage of being very close to UNESCO town of Třebíč to pay a visit.
The post-White Mountain period (the 17th and the 18th centuries). The time of Recatholicization (Counterreformation) is related to the new artistic style – the Baroque, which has influenced and formed the architectonic appearance of Prague up to these days.
Let us take you to the monasteries of South Bohemia with a stop in the fairy-tale town of Český Krumlov.
The Holy Trinity Column – a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the unique astronomical clock or a rare collection of churches and fountains. All this awaits you in Olomouc!
The Jewish population had been settling in the region of Prague already from the 10th century. Their first settlements, which later disappeared without leaving a trace, were in the Lesser Side (at Újezd) and under Vyšehrad. Possibly in the 1st half of the 12th century another Jewish settlement with a synagogue was established around today’s Dušní Street.
Visit a place of suffering for almost 150,000 deported Jews, victims of a reign of violence, many of whom died in Terezín (Theresienstadt) and Auschwitz and other death camps.
The Jewish Quarter in Třebíč is noteworthy for having been included on the UNESCO World Heritage List a decade ago. Indeed, it is the only stand-alone Jewish historical landmark outside the State of Israel to earn such a distinction. In addition, it is easily accessible from the main motorway linking Prague with Vienna and Budapest.
