I totally agree that this is the no 1 tourist attraction in Olomouc and it was the main reason of my i night stay here in Nov 2014. It is definitely the most eye-catching monument when you walked to the square around the town tall. There is the copper gilded sculpture of Holy Trinity on the top of the column... More

I can say only WHAU. Beautyful place! Romatic, really. I recommend it for all who like history. The statue is a beatiful historic square.

It's a UNESCO world heritage site so it is not only beautiful and historic, but it is unique also, which is a requirement for a such an accolade. It is pretty much one of a kind. Don't miss it.

The column is high and old (18th century) and it is hard to miss when you enter the square. Looks a bit drab on an overcast day but the lights at night are charming.

Recently visited Olomouc and seen the monument on the main market square of Olomouc. The column itself is very impressive and the surrounding buildings and other smaller monuments make it even nicer. Must see place in Olomouc.

This is very impressive and I have never seen anything quite like this- however it is not really evident that it is to commemorate victims if the plague unless you had read about it previously.

The Holy Trinity Column, a monument to those who died during the Plague, is an excellent meeting point in the center of Olomouc. It's slightly taller than Prague's, so obviously you have to visit! Be sure to check out the astronomical clock nearby and grab a (cheap, but good) beer in one of the cafes.

One of Olomouc's must-sees. The sculpture is great but the surface has been slightly worn out so it doesn't look that clean. The squares are nice places for relaxing.
