Mystical Czech Republic – visit places with
powerful energy
There are many ageless buildings and mysterious places in the
Czech Republic with stories to tell about magic. Go in search of
the mysteries of Central Europe and discover places that have
been fascinating visitors with their mystical atmosphere and
positive energy.
1. Pilgrimage Basilica on Svatý Hostýn
Near Přerov in South Moravia lies the village of Hostýn, surrounding one
of the most important Czech pilgrimage sites. At the top of the hill stands
the Basilica of the Assumption with its long and turbulent history. A fort
was built here by ancient people and during the Middle Ages the
inhabitants of surrounding hamlets sought shelter from Tatar raids at the
top of it. When they ran out of supplies, they prayed to the Mother of
God, who opened up a spring at their hiding place. Shortly after
that, a violent storm broke out that drove the invaders away. As the legend
of it began to spread, more and more pilgrims came to Hostýn, and so in
the early 18th century today’s Basilica of the Assumption was built here.
The Water Chapel was built around the miracle spring and the
entire location is visited by thousands of pilgrims who also go to see the
extraordinarily constructed Way of the Cross by architect Dušan
2. Rotunda of St. Peter and Paul in Budeč u Zákolan
The beginnings of Czech statehood are still recalled in the Rotunda of
Peter and Paul in Budeč, which was built about 1,100 years ago. The nave
is not only the oldest still standing structure in the Czech
Republic but also the oldest school in the country. Presumably the
patron saint of the Czech lands, St. Václav, whose life ended in
fratricide, also studied here. It is surrounded by very powerful and
positive energy, and has a shape that actually resembles a heart. Sensitive
people feel peace of mind here and manage to rise above the problems of
the outside world.
ČCCR — CzechTourism
is an allowance organization
of the Ministry for Regional
development of the Czech
Republic. Its main activity
is the promotion of the Czech
Republic as an attractive
tourist destination
both at home and abroad.
3. Magical monasteries Rosa Coeli and Panenský Týnec
South Moravia also has another building shrouded in positive energy.
Rosa Coeli is the oldest convent in Moravia. Today only the main wall
remains, along with several vaults, and the building has something
extraordinarily magical about it – between the walls, you can admire the
starry sky in place of the vaulted ceiling, and if your nature is extra
sensitive, you will certainly feel waves of positive energy flowing
around you.
You will also find a magical place that breathes a unique atmosphere in
northwestern Bohemia. Panenský Týnec is an old town founded by the
noble clan of Žerotín in the 13th century. Its massive, unfinished Gothic
church, whose magical power is hidden in the stone walls, also dates from
this period. It is one of the most powerful and mystical places in the Czech
Republic. The shape of the positive energy zone in Panenský Týnec
resembles a cross and a stay in this place is especially recommended for
people suffering from depression with suicidal tendencies.
4. Říp and Blaník, mountains shrouded in legend
The momentous Říp Mountain is the symbol of Czech national history. An
old legend says that the forefather of the nation, Čech, stopped here with
his retinue in search of a new home for the Slavs. According to the legend,
the mountain opened up on Palm Sunday and inside he spied a large
clearing where horses with golden horseshoes were grazing. The tale
furthermore mentions a pond with a flock of geese with golden feathers
and a hen with twelve golden eggs. All that is certain is that at the top of
the hill stands the Romanesque rotunda of St. Jiří and St. Vojtěch, one of
the oldest preserved structures in the country.
Standing in Central Bohemia is the small mountain of Blaník, which is
associated with the legend of the Knights of Blaník. The legend of this
army of warriors sleeping inside the mountain, from where they emerge to
help their people, spread throughout the Celtic world. Every day spent
inside the mountain is, according to legend, as long as an Earth year.
5. Treasures of Krudum Hill in Slavkov Forest
Legendary Krudum Hill in the protected area of Slavkov Forest in the
Karlovy Vary region supposedly hides many treasures of the Celts who
once lived here. It was said about Krudum that it had a green head
(forest), silver heart (silver ore) and golden foot (gold was once panned in
the marshland at the foot of the hill). All locations, including the local
church, reportedly conceal unimaginable wealth. Another legend talks
about the ghosts of miners who meet regularly for mass at the local chapel.
