In the minds of many people, steeplechase is inextricably linked with Pardubice, just like the famous Velká pardubická, which retains its unique charm even now. However, the way leading to the first Velká pardubická steeplechase was extremely difficult, and it almost looked that the toughest continental European steeplechase race will remain just a dream. This diploma thesis deals with the mapping of the beginnings of horse racing in Pardubice Region during the time of the Austrian Empire and Austria-Hungary and primarily aims to examine the influence of the nobility of that time on the emergence of horse racing in the given region and on its importance from a social and political point of view. Using the analytic-synthetic method and the study of historical sources, it was possible to confirm that the aristocracy played an essential role in the beginnings of horse racing in Pardubice Region, with the most important noble houses of Auersperg and Kinsky who first organized fox hunting, the predecessors of steeplechase crosscountry, and then they gradually started organizing steeplechase races. The main source of inspiration for them was the cradle of horse racing, Great Britain, and the Grand National in Liverpool. It turns out that horse racing was very significant for Pardubice Region both from...

Petričáková, Štěpánka ; Zdichynec, Jan (advisor) ; Foltýn, Dušan (referee)
The Bachelor᾽s thesis aims to introduce the Congregation of the Daughter of Divine Love (FDC) and its contribution primarily in the field of education.

The time span of 1921-1950 corresponds to the duration of the sisters at Veltrusy. Another target of my study was the depiction of an interesting and almost forgotten theme from the history of the town, whose name is often associated with the chateau, which is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. So, it falls not only within the realm of monastic but also regional history. For the purpose of introduction to the issue is introduced as first of all the historical development of the congregation FDC and history of female education in the modern era. The next chapter devotes to the Congregation itself and its extension to Czechoslovakia. Then there is focus on the activities of sisters FDC at Veltrusy. The Bachelor's Thesis deals with the work of sisters in the context of difficult historical events. The topic is processed through narrative, written sources, and secondary literature. At the end of the work there is a pictorial annex, which illustrates the overall picture of...
