The memorial Cairn of Peace (Mohyla Míru) is located just a few kilometres from Brno, near the village of Prace. It is an attractive place especially for those who like history as well as countryside. The memorial consists of a square chapel with a marble altar. An interesting feature is the chapel's acoustics. When you whisper in one corner, a person standing in the opposite corner will hear you equally loud. A similar phenomenon can be found also in St. Paul's Cathedral in London. Next to the memorial stands a museum with an exhibition dedicated to the Battle of Austerlitz. The Cairn of Peace was the very first peace monument in Europe. It was built in honour of the important Battle of Austerlitz, also known as the Battle of Three Emperors, where the Russian, French and Austrian armies fought against one another.
