Hundreds of people took part in the St.Vavřinec Day pilgrimage to the top of the Czech Republic’s highest mountain Sněžka in the Krkonoše Mountains on Friday. They also attended a mass served at the St.Vavřinec chapel situated on the peak of the mountain.
The annual climb takes place on St. Vavřinec Day, which falls on August 10, since St. Vavřinec is the patron saint of the Krkonoše Mountains. Among those who regularly attend the pilgrimage is former Czech president Václav Klaus.
