The “light of Bethlehem” at Prague’s St. Vitus’ Cathedral


Scouts delivered the “light of Bethlehem” to Prague’s St. Vitus’ Cathedral at the weekend. The tradition dates back to the mid-1980s. Since then a flame light at the spot where Jesus Christ is reputed to have been born is brought from Israel to Austria and from there to other states.
