Owner description: This 115-foot-tall, early-18th-century structure is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Reviewed 29 June 2018

Standing at the main square in Olomouc, close to the town hall, heliocentric astronomical clock and arion fountain is much praised and listed in UNESCO. It was built to celebrate the end of the plague in Moravia in the mid 18th century and it is the biggest baroque sculpture in central Europe. There is an iteresting fact about the statues and you can play a game: "who does not belong?" There is a statue of John Sarcander who was a priest tortured to death in Olomouc prison in the beginning of the Thirty Years' War. At the time of the building of the column he had not been canonized yet and thus unusual and interesting to find him on the column anyway ;-) (he holds a lily). Anyhow the whole column could use some cleaning and proper maintenance.

This is a very impressive monument built by Plague survivors as thanks for being spared a nasty death. There is actually a small chapel inside the monument.

Next to the town hall and the astronomical clock, in a nice open square it’s part of the must on the city.

It isn't worth making a special effort - but it is in the middle of the main square so you can't miss it if you are there to see the clock

I’m sure you won’t miss this impressive statue when visiting Olomouc. Anyway it’s really huge and the work is incredible.
