I find it bizarre that this column was singled out by UNESCO for world heritage status. It's interesting and, I guess, beautiful in its way but there are more worthwhile sights in this beautiful city. The whole centre should have been granted WH status, it certainly merits it. Maybe UNESCO was boxed in by its own rules (too many nondescript... More

You can't miss it, monument is situated on one of main squares. It's good thing to see, sit in one of nearby bars and enjoy the view. There aren't lot of tourists so you'll have peace to be with your thoughts.

This is the biggest plague column in Europe. Best seen on a sunny day, with the gold Trinity at the top shining at its best. Take your time to examine all the figures on the outside of the column. The tiny chapel in the interior doesn't have much to show.

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.
