Fodor's Prague & the Best of the Czech Republic
Morový sloup (Trinity Column)
Morový sloup (Trinity Column) Review
In the northwest corner of Horní náměstí this eccentric Trinity column, is one of the best surviving examples of the Olomouc baroque style, which was prevalent in this region of Moravia after the Thirty Years' War in the 17th century. At 35 meters (115 feet), it's the tallest column devoted to victims of the plague in the Czech Republic. The column alone (not the rest of the square) is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Its construction began in 1717, but it was not completed until 1754, long after the death of its principal designer, Václav Render, who left all his wealth to the city of Olomouc so that the column could be finished. Inside is a small chapel that, unfortunately, is never open.
