Information from history


The settlement area in the territory of today's Staré Město, Uherské Hradiště and Sady was undoubtedly one of the centres of Great Moravia. Power administration, craft production and trade as well as religious and cultural spheres were concentrated here. After the end of the Great Moravian Empire, the importance of this centre disappeared.
