This is a story straight out of a detective novel.
The year is 1985 and the criminal police are searching for some sort of valuable item which is located somewhere in the country and which an unknown foreigner is interested in.
They only have a few clues and it is almost impossible to solve the case. In the end, they find some treasure hidden under the floor of the chateau chapel in Bečov nad Teplou: a beautifully decorated golden casket dating back to the 13th century used to store the remains of St. Maurus. The reliquary is one of the most beautiful examples of medieval goldsmithery and is the second most valuable relic in the Czech Republic after the crown jewels. You will find the reliquary and details about its story in Chateau Bečov.
