Saint Ladislaus’ memory is still alive in the Hungarian culture: the knight king is present in our legends, he is the hero of our tales and the central figure of many pilgrimages. We invite you to visit the 49 locations in Transylvania, Hungary, Slovakia and Serbia to discover everything that we still cherish from the king’s cult: the built heritage, locations connected to the Saint Ladislaus legends and the beautiful natural landmarks. The project is an ongoing one: our goal is to connect the Hungarians who live in the Carpathian Basin with a cultural tour, presenting the heritage of Saint Ladislaus.
We invite you to visit Transylvania and Hungary, to discover everything that we still cherish from Saint Ladislaus’s cult. Plan your route here.
In addition to being named after the king in Hungarian (Tordaszentlászló), Săvădisla was associated with Saint Ladislaus also because of its medieval church. The church was built in honour of the knight king, but it was demolished in the 19th century. The road leading to the pilgrimage site near Tureni (Hu: Tordatúr), which was also part of the cult of the knight king, passes through the village. Many of the local boundary names refer to this, such as the Pilgrims’ path and the Pilgrims’well. A large number of nummulites, known as the coins of St. Ladislaus can be found on the fringes of this settlement as well.
