One of the most famous pilgrim places in the Czech Republic is closely associated with the Cyril and Method tradition and it was probably the seat of the first Great-Moravian archbishop St. Method. In 1205 the first Cistercian Monastery in Moravia was founded here. Besides the 100 m long basilica - once the biggest church in the country, the pilgrim area includes underground catacombs and a lapidarium with the base of a former sanctuary. In 1985, pope John Paul II. granted „the Golden Rose“ to the Velehrad Basilica – a precious gift which only Lourdes in France, Guadalupe in Mexico and Czestochowa in Poland can boast of.
