Religious Heritage

 
All four countries went through very rich history whose evidence you can admire on nearly every step. Apart from castles and old houses many religious sites are preserved. The area of Visegrad Group was mostly formed by Christian culture which was spread here till the end of first millennium. Thousands of monuments such as cathedrals, churches, chapels or pilgrimage sites take pride in their beauty. But the region has also always been a haven for settlers, including those of Jewish religion. The history of Jewish settlement in the region goes back to the Middle Ages or even earlier. Jewish culture, being rich and deep at the time and embodying many religious and cultural traditions, has undoubtedly influenced the development of countries in the Visegrad Group. Despite the Holocaust, many Jewish sites have been preserved and are very attractive target for foreign visitors.
