Czechs and Slovaks propose ancient Great Moravian sites on UNESCO list

The Slovak and Czech culture ministries signed a joint proposal to nominate two sites of Great Moravia - the Slavonic fortified settlement in Mikulcice (Czech Republic) and the Church of St. Margaret of Antioch in Kopsany (Trnava region of Slovakia) - for inclusion on the UNESCO World Heritage List. The territory where the sites are located stretches over the borders of the Czech and Slovak Republics. The two are the most preserved immovable sites from the early Middle Ages in the Slavonic state known as Great Moravia (in existence at the turn of the 9th and 10th centuries), whose founders were believed to be the ancestors of the Czechs and Slovaks. Its imperial city was Nitra.
