Plague Column is a plague commemorating the plague's victims in 1600.
It is a good spot for taking some pictures.

Located in Svornosti Square in the center of Old Town (more or less), this column/statue/fountain is a memorial to the plague that struck Cesky Krumlov in the 1600s. As the only info (?) on the plague was written in Czech--I assume--we had to Google it, and then we learned something. This plague was not the Bubonic Plague (aka Black Death), as we had assumed, but a later plague.

This monument should have significant place in this town. But locals treat this place as underwhelming nuisance.

A huge part of history with this monument to commemorate the Black Plague of centuries past. Interesting.

You find these plague columns all over Europe. They are somewhat a "thank you" to the Holy Trinity from those who survived the various plagues that ravished Europe through the ages. This is another beautiful one, right in the middle of the main square of Cesky Krumlov.

Our tour of the town ended up here. Fun to sit on one of the many benches surrounding the column and square to people watch. History is all around you with buildings maintained in accordance to their 500 year history. Sunshine and pleasant weather on our day to visit added to the ambiance.

The fountain is located in the center of the central town plaza and is worth seeing along with the plaza itself. A good place to watch all the tourists that congregate there on their visit to the quaint town of 1400 people.

Anyone touring in eastern Europe will see quite a few memorial remembering the plague. Indeed, they are interesting to compare. Often centrally located, as this one is, they are easy to find and recall a time in history when infectious diseases ravaged Europe.
