OPEN TO THE PUBLIC FOR THE FIRST TIME
Following The Friends' working party in June last year, we were pleased to receive summertime photographs of the Lower Cemetery at Žďár nad Sázavou from Zbyněk Vintr, who managed the project there. The enclosure, designed built by the famous Baroque architect J. B. Santini-Aichel, was in fact never used for burials and is now open to the public, with an attractive carpet of wild flowers. On its first weekend the site welcomed 300 visitors.
The UNESCO pilgrimage church of St. John of Nepomuk at Zelená hora forms part of the complex.
