Rotunda from the Great Moravian Empire found in Czech Republic

Pohansko, in the South Moravian region of the Czech Republic, translates as "Pagan Place," but archaeologists have discovered the remains of a rotunda as part of a 9th century church.

"It has turned out now that Pohansko, too, had its own rotunda. These buildings were characteristic of Great Moravian centres. The find has raised the historical importance of Pohansko," said Jiri Machacek, archaeology professor from Masaryk University in Brno. The circular stone church measures six meters in diameter.
