Wandering along the path of the tradition of Sts. Cyril and Methodius
After the 11 centuries that have passed since the death of Sts. Cyril and Methodius, the saints’ heritage remains alive for all Slavs. This tradition, that is to say, the legacy of their work, originated in the womb of a single undivided church, united by a unanimous faith in one God. The Thessalonian missionaries preached the gospel in a language which the western Slavs understood, created the first Slavic script – the Glagolitic, translated the Scripture, formulated the Church and Civil Code, defended the Slavic church service... they thus included the Slavs among the advanced nations and embedded themselves indelibly in the history of Europe. In 1980, Pope John Paul II proclaimed them Europe’s co-patrons. We would like to invite you to walk in the footsteps of their legacy – visit pilgrimage sites and sacred monuments, and attend pilgrimages and other events, especially along the C&M route.
