The Archbishopric of Prague to Take Part in the Regiontour Fair

14. 1. 2013

In the course of the fair, people who deal with tourist trade and domestic tourism on a professional level will meet at the exhibition grounds in Brno – be it on the level of the state, regions, towns and villages or individual providers of services. Again, the greatest attention will be paid to the theme of propagation and tourist use of church monuments and pilgrims' paths. Four Moravian regions will introduce their new guidebooks and their common project called the "Spiritual Legacy of Moravia and Silesia". In connection with the upcoming 1150th anniversary of the arrival of Cyril and Methodius to Moravia, an increased interest in Moravian sacral monuments is expected. This year, also the Archbishopric of Prague will be among the exhibitors, with its nine exhibition panels presenting preservation of monuments within the archdiocese, including several restoration projects that have occurred lately - e.g. restoration works in the Church of Saint Nicholas at Lesser Town Square (the king post from the cupola, Škréta's Passion Cycle), in the Church of the Most Holy Saviour in the Old Town of Prague, examination of the remains of Tycho de Brahe in the Church of the Mother of God before Tyn, and others. Thus, for the Archbishopric of Prague it is a follow-up to their presentation at the fair called PAMÁTKY 2012 (monuments 2012), which took place in Prague last year. A rich accompanying program of the fair in Brno includes also a workshop "Church Tourism II" which will take place in the largest hall P1 on 17th January from 3 p.m. in the presence of distinguished guests. Among those who accepted the invitation are the Archbishop of Prague Cardinal Dominik Duka OP and the Archbishop of Olomouc Jan Graubner. In the following days, attention will be focused on regional education and new methods in education. The fair takes place under the auspices of the Archbishop of Prague, Cardinal Dominik Duka.

    They wanted to become part of those nations and to share their destiny in everything. Here, in this place, at Velehrad, in Moravia, we can feel the historical legacy of the kingdom in a peculiar way – we can feel even those who became its keepers and guardians.

  • Their work is also a very important contribution to the growth of the common Christian roots of Europe, which by their firmness and viability create one of the main contact points, which must be respected by every serious attempt at reunification of our continent in a new and topical way.

  • The story of both brothers, Cyril and Methodius, is a distinct example of unity.
