The Cairn of Peace Memorial

The Cairn of Peace Memorial was built in honour of victims of the battle of Austerlitz (2. 12. 1805) at behest of the priest and teacher Alois Slovák to fulfil his vision to turn the centre of the former battlefield into a “scene of light”, a memento of wars. The Cairn of Peace is a dominant feature and a natural centre of the protected area of the Austerlitz battlefield.

In the museum building neighbouring the Cairn of Peace, visitors can see a permanent multimedia exhibition Battle of Three Emperors. Slavkov/Austerlitz 1805 that approaches the battle of Austerlitz in an unconventional way. In the exhibition Phenomenon of Austerlitz in the museum pavilion, tourists can get familiar with the way the battle of Austerlitz was reflected by the minds of writers, musicians, filmmakers, or with the tradition of the battle re-enactment. Additions to permanent exhibitions are temporary exhibitions installed in the museum extension.

The act of piety to honour fallen soldiers takes place in the area at the turn of November and December every year as a peak of commemorations of the battle anniversary. During state holidays, important days, July, and August the Cairn is festively lit.

There is a souvenir shop available to visitors with a broad selection of themed souvenirs. Visit at the Cairn of Peace is more pleasant thanks to the stylish Café with an outdoor terrace. Tourists and cyclists, as well as tourists, who visit the museum, can enjoy an excellent coffee, refreshing drink or have a delicious dessert. In the Café, there is also an elegant lounge available for rent.
