Patriotic walk on Vyšehrad on the occasion of anniversary of the Slavic congress

On Tuesday, on the occasion of the 171st anniversary of the Slavic congress, which took place in 1848 in Prague (more info below), we took a patriotic walk to Vyšehrad, a magical and important place for our czech nation associated with many legends and historical events, which was also one of the centers of our statehood. We set off from the subway station of the same name and during the walk we stopped at various places of Vyšehrad, where one of us had a short lecture about that particular place. Finally, we docked in a pub near Saint Peter and Paul's Basilica, where we rested and finished our trip.

The Slavic congress in 1848 was an important event of its time. It was presided by František Palacký and was attended by many important slavic personalities of the first half of the 19th century. There were solved many thorny issues such as the interrelationship between the slavic nations, the relations between the Slavs and the other nations (especially the Germans), the concepts of panslavism and austro - slavism and other political and cultural cooperation. It was one of the milestones of the slavic movement, that started the gradual path of our nations towards self - determination.

We think it is important to do not forget this heritage, because today, when unfortunately national pride falls and traditional virtues and values ​​are programmatically ridiculed, it is time for each of us to stand up for what is right. So let's honor, what our ancestors left us here and let's carry forward this burning torch, that we could hand it over to our children in future. Being a proud Slovan meant primarily to love - our country, our family, our ancestors, our traditions, our culture. The heritage of the slavic congress from 1848 is therefore in many cases still up to date. Perhaps more up to date than ever before ... 

Below you can see some of the pictures from this trip, in which took part  magical ornamentalists Jan Hachran and Jakub Křelina.
