Autumn Equinox in Sedlec Cathedral
Not only in March, but also in September, the beautiful CathedralCathedral of the Assumption of the Virgin Mary and St. John the Baptist shines on the day of the equinox.
And this year it will shine a little more, because in addition to watching the autumn rays, you will be able to experience live painting by Nina Kirk right in the cathedral. Let the artist be inspired by the sun's rays or Santini's geometry. We don't know, we will find out on September 23 at 5:30 pm right in the cathedral.
The oldest cathedral in the Czech Republic is, like many other sacred buildings, oriented with the entrance to the west and the main altar to the east. The builders of the cathedral in the 13th century very precisely determined the axis of the sunset to the ground plan of the building and adapted the construction of the Sedlec cathedral so that at sunset on the days of the spring and autumn equinoxes, the ray of the setting sun through the largest window in the west facade of the cathedral falls directly on the symbolic heart of the sacred building, the main altar.
