About Plague Column, Cesky Krumlov

In the 16th century, there was just a stone fountain at this site, and it looked nothing like what you see today. Poor function led to the fountain's reconstruction in the 19th century. It resulted in a beautiful hexagonal monument, with a 17th century column rising from its centre. The column was built in commemoration of the plague victims of the late 17th century. The sculptures at its base represent the town's protectors and saints associated with fighting the plague. On top of the column is a statue of the Virgin Mary. Take a picture, and continue your tour of the historic centre.

  • The Column of the Holy Trinity is a Baroque plague column on Malostranské Square in Prague. The column was built out of gratitude after the plague epidemic ended in 1713 , completed in 1715 . The architectural design comes from Giovanni Battista Alliprandi , the sculptural decorations were made by Jan Oldrich Mayer and Ferdinand Geiger . After the famine in 1772 , putti and vases from the work of František Ignác Platzer were added . [1] The column is crowned by a triangular obelisk with the symbol of God's eye on the top and the representation of the Holy Trinity - Christ , God the Father and the dove of the Holy Spirit . On the lower level there is a statue of the Virgin Mary of Immaculate and the Czech patrons of St. Vojtěch , Jan Nepomucký , Prokop , Ludmila and Wenceslas . The lower part consists of a high plinth with marble inscriptions, fountains and a small one . The column is on a low stepped foot enclosed by a balustradewith putti and vases. The entire pillar is still surrounded by stone pillars with chains and in front of the main side is a pavement cross with the year 1882 .

  • This is an amazing statue and it is intricately crafted. My hat off to the sculptor that created it.

  • Smaller than the one from Olomouc but still beautiful.

  • Beautiful

  • I don't know which square is more beautiful in Prague!
