Where the Czech...? #128


Does anybody recognise this structure and know who those people might be?

Certainly appears to be excavations so maybe under Prague castle?

Well you are back with a vengeance! The large foundation and the alignment of the bodies suggest an old church. The nice presentation and preservation suggest it must be place of some significance. Not sure, must do some "digging" on the internet to figure this one out.

It is a significant old church, but is not really in or near Prague...

Hmmm tough one. It kind of reminds me of the Memorial of Great Moravia in Staré Město u Uherského Hradiště? It looks the same, but at the same time different from what I remember from 2002.

That's much closer Jay, but not quite there...

These are the foundations and graves of one of the Great Moravian Empire churches at Mikulčice, near Hodonin. I believe the site is on the short list under consideration for UNESCO world heritage listing.
