Abstract: EU has reached enormous progress in economy and politics. It is a union of nations on the basis of legal, democratic grounds. A feature of each democracy is the protection of human rights. The test-paper showing a real freedom is depicted by the regulations of a state. These regulations delineate the freedom of religious belief, the relation of churches and religious communities with a state. EU already has a formed European model of relations between Church and a state. It leaves such traditions and a legal base in each state that has been formed by the people of the nation during long decades. There are three models: the status of „state religion“ but it does not do any harm to democratic attitudes. It does not discriminate persons who do not belong to the main religion; the second, a model of cooperation of Church and a state, the third is more strict, separation of Church. EU Lisbon Treaty is much more favourable to religious communities than EU Constitution used to be. As EU member states belong to European Council, the regulations of which on religion were remarkably perfect than those of EU Agreements, EU leaders had to be more precise with the position of the Holy See in Nice Agreement of the Charter of Human Rights. Unfortunately, some people from European continent are devoted to the flow of secularised society which is not able to measure the heritage of Christianity. Due to this misunderstandings and cases appear in the European Court of Human Rights concerning religious practise in public institutions
