Staré Město

For more than 70 years, the Staré Město has been a showcase of the history associated with Great Moravia. It was here that the foundations of the first Great Moravian church from the 9th century in our territory were discovered in 1949. In 1961, a monument was opened to the public above them, which today bears the name of the Great Moravia Memorial – Cyril and Methodius Centre. And so the story of a place that brings us back to times long past and times almost forgotten began to be written.

But it is not only the period of Great Moravia – we must not forget the traces of much older settlements. Discover the traces of prehistoric times, the story of Slavic lore and the life of the Great Moravian nobility and visit the monument, which is classified as a national cultural monument and its expositions are also adapted for the blind and visually impaired.
