Church of the Name of Virgin Mary (Křtiny)

Křtiny are our oldest pilgrim towns where – accordning to the legend – the saints Cyril and Metoděj christened others. Another tradition talks of revelation of Virgin Mary of Křtiny in 1210 in the nearby village of Bukovinka. The Pope bulla from 1237 is the first written note about the church.
The village Křtiny used to be the most flourishing town in the 17th and 18th centuries when the baroque shrine was built according to the project of the architect Jan Blažej Santini Aichel. At that time Křtiny became the centre of the spiritual renovation of the whole Moravia.
