Days of the People of Goodwill, Velehrad

Every year from 4th to 5th July, on the eve of the national holiday, the Day of the Slavonic Missionaries Cyril and Methodius, the Days of the People of Goodwill take place at Velehrad. Thus, the small village of Velehrad, which surpasses many cities in importance, becomes a setting for the most significant event of the year. In July 2020 visitors enjoyed the traditional projects of the non-profit sector and a festive concert, the Evening of the People of Goodwill as well. This begins every year on the stage in front of the basilica during which four charitable projects are introduced. The profit is then distributed among projects pre-selected in advance.

Heart of Europe

The cultural event on the Czech – Slovak – Polish borderland known as the Heart of Europe took place in 2020 for the seventeenth time. As every year the concert has been related to the sale of symbolic paper hearts. The profit is traditionally donated to the social welfare institutions in the region. The youngest spectators enjoyed the programme "Around the World", the older spectators had a remarkable musical experience due to musical performances of Jakub Děkan and Pavel Novák ml.
