The AURIGAŽ spol. s r.o. funeral home is the only one running a specialized center for thanatopractice, i.e., reverential treatment of dead bodies and embalming.
The aim of thanatopractice is to prepare the body of the deceased for the following mourning ceremonies. The thanatopractical treatment can stop the body from decomposing for a certain time and it also includes a cosmetic modification.
The company wants to share its practical experiences and thus teaches Czech and German students how to embalm.
Owners of this funeral home are the only one in the Czech Republic who, after 2 years of study, gained a diploma to be allowed to perform the embalming of the deceased and a higher hygienic provision.
