How to becoma a pilgrim
There are three pilgrimage routes and they connect the main pilgrimage destinations - Klokoty, the Mlevsko monastery and the Bechyně monastery. So you can choose whether to go from Tábor to Bechyně, from Bechyně to Milevsko, or from Milevsko to Tábor. Or, best of all, whether you miss the entire pilgrimage circuit, which measures over 100 km. But you can actually go from anywhere.
You become a pilgrim if you reach one of the three pilgrimage destinations (Klokoty, Klášter Bechyně, Klášter Milevsko) at least 15 km on foot (or 30 km by bike). In the pilgrim's office or other notebook, there must be a stamp of the church, parish or information center at least 15 km away.
If you walked and you prove yourself in one of the three destinations with this stamp, you will receive a pilgrim's certificate, each pilgrim will be placed on the list of pilgrims by writing in the pilgrimage book and will be remembered in prayers and at Holy Mass.
