The idea of building a mass tomb came from the Svatobor association in 1862, and it was headed by František Palacký.

Slavín was built in 1889 - 1893 according to a project of architect Antonín Wiehl. Sculptural decorations are the work of Josef Mauder from 1892 - 1903: there is a sarcophagus above the central monument of Slavín, and an allegoric winged figure of the Genius Patriae.
