While visiting the Old Town Square to see the Astronomical Clock and other attractions found in the historic city center, its worth having a look at the Jan Hus Monument located in center of the square.
Jan Hus is a historically important figure who was a philosopher, professor, priest and a reformer most commonly associated with the Hussite movement against the Roman Catholic Church in the 15th century. He was eventually burned at the stake for heresy against the church.
This monument to Jan Hus, was designed by Ladislav Saloun and was unveiled in 1915 to commemorate the 500th anniversary of his martyrdom. It is a dark monument, reflecting the sad nature of Jan Hus's fate but it is nice to see and easily visitable while you are in the Old Town Square. We were lucky enough to visit after a morning snow, which made for some nice photographs.
