Pilgrimage Church of the Virgin Mary in Křtiny

Křtiny: Santini’s Pearl of Moravia

The picturesque Moravian Karst northeast of Brno holds an important pilgrimage place –
Křtiny. Come and see for yourself why its nickname, the Pearl of Moravia, is well-deserved. Discover the beauty of the Baroque Church of the Holy Name of Mary, designed by master architect Jan Santini-Aichel, who built dozens of important buildings in the Baroque-Gothic style in Bohemia and Moravia. There you will see a Gothic statue of the Virgin Mary of Křtiny and delight in the regalia. Other attractions include a carillon. In the crypt below the church is a vast ossuary where a special discovery was made in the early 1990s: twelve skulls painted with laurel wreaths and the letter T.
