A Pilgrimage

Today, I took some time and went to Opava. It is only a couple of hours from Brno, but I have delayed the trip too many times. I went in search of Franz Bardon.. Frantisek Bardon in Czech… and I found him.

His grave is located in Opava Kylesovice.

Standing by his grave, I found the atmosphere calm, peaceful, but electric… The grave is very well kept as well.

There was, for me, a definite presence…

Having paid my respects, I looked for his house located close by the cemetery and I believe this is it… based on Martin Faulks video...

I then went into town and hunted down his flat, place of birth and lab… This photo is of the street in which he had a flat – though which house it was I do not know.

Below is a photo of his lab in town. It is the house with the parked car in front of it.

I also just reveled in being in Opava. A place he would have obviously known very well.

All in all, it was a great day.

Opava doesn’t seem to know him. There are no little signs nor any sign that he ever lived there. Perhaps he would have wanted it that way?

Now, I live in Brno. It was here that he died in a communist prison. In Brno Castle… I will post photos of that shortly..
