The traditional pilgrimage to St. Valentine's Day takes place on
Saturday at Prague's Vyšehrad.
The tradition was founded after the discovery of the remains of the patron saint of lovers in St. Peter and Paul's Church at Vyšehrad in 2002.
They were probably brought to Bohemia from Italy by Charles IV. Since 2003, a pilgrimage service has been celebrated there each year.
