Památník Mohyla míru - The Cairn of Peace Memorial

The memorial was built to honour the victims of Napoleon’s victorious battle near Austerlitz (“Slavkov“ in Czech; fought on 2 December 1805) from the initiative of Priest A. Slovák, as a realization of his idea to make a pious "place of light" from the centre of a one-time battlefield - memento of the wars. Now it is the dominant feature and natural centre of the Austerlitz battlefield as a protected battlefield zone. At the renovated Museum adjoining the Memorial, visitors can view an unconventionally conceived multimedia exhibition devoted to “THE BATTLE OF THE THREE EMPERORS. SLAVKOV / AUSTERLITZ 1805“ and a novel exposition entitled “AUSTERLITZ PHENOMENON“ which presents the “second life" of the battle. In conclusion of the re-enactment events on the Battle’s anniversary held every year at the end of November and the beginning of December, remembrance ceremonies take place in the Memorial’s premises to honour its victims.
On the national and religious holidays and throughout July and August the Cairn of Peace Memorial is festively illuminated.
While in the Memorial’s premises, visitors can drop by a café whose opening times are matched to those of the Memorial. For more information please call +420 544 544 240. A souvenir shop offers a wide selection of items.
