Accommodation in the center of Rome
The spiritual and cultural center for pilgrims
The pilgrim house Velehrad is situated in the center of Rome near Vatican. It is about 15 minutes walk to St. Peterʼs Square. Near the house there is a train station, from where it is possible to travel to surroundings comfortably, e.g. to the sea or to Castel Gandolfo. It is about 15 minutes walk to Gianicolo hill, from where there is a nice view to the city. The same distance is to the Public Park of Villa Doria Pamphili.
INVITATION TO THE EXHIBITION
ABOUT P. JAN BULA and P. VÁCLAV DRBOLA
We invite all pilgrims and visitors of the Eternal City from 8:00 to 21:00 to visit the exhibition dedicated to the martyrs of the 20th century P. Bula and P. Drbola.
The exhibition is located in the Velehrad Pilgrimage House in Rome and will run until the end of November. The exhibition is a social event, a meeting of prayer in connection with the impending canonization of the Servants of God, and after the exhibition in the Pilgrimage House, it will be on view in Italian parishes. Further information is available in the Testimonium martyrii Bulletin or at: kanonizace.biskupstvi.cz
Václav Drbola and Jan Bula were illegally sentenced to death in 1951 in a trial related to the Babice case and then executed. In the time of communist totalitarianism, it was of course not possible to initiate their beatification proceedings. However, these executed priests were previously considered private martyrs of the faith. After the fall of the communist regime, both were fully rehabilitated by the civil justice authorities.

Centro Boemo Velehrad posto ideale per visitare la bellissima Roma. A due passi dal Vaticano, pulitissimo, molto gentili, ottima stanza e super colazione! Che dire, quando torneremo a Roma verremo sempre all’Velehrad!!
It is wonderful place. Very easy to get to from the train station, although it was a little walk to te Vatican, it didn’t bother us at all. We loved everything about Velehrad Pilgrim House and would definitely stay here again on our next visit.
Thank you for a most safe, comfortable and peaceful haven.
