A living monument

Ten years ago, the Memorial of Great Moravia in the Staré Město had been made a reconstruction, which gave it the hallmark of a modern multimedia exhibition. The history of Great Moravia in the form of several dioramas has since been accompanied by the figure of the noble Mojslav, whose life destinies also reflect the "great" history of the Great Moravian Empire. But do you know what happens when the characters from the dioramas come to life for one evening? If you are interested, come and see the memorial! Pictures from the times of Great Moravia will be accompanied by a commentary and you yourself will become part of several Great Moravian stories.
