End of plague
Jan 2018 • Family
The Marian plague is in front of the Císařský dům and was built in a Renaissance style. The Column was built by the city ​​council in 1681 as a thank you to the end of the plague epidemic . The column is finished with a Gothic sculpture of the Pilsen Madonna .

Beautiful Statue
Jun 2017 • Couples
I didn't know what the statue was for but it really is quite beautiful. Very ornate and has perfect background for photos - the old buildings or cathedral. Can't miss it if you are in the Republic Square.

A highlight of Pilsen
Mar 2016 • Couples
Possibly a bit hidden between the cathedral and the city hall, in one corner of the main square, this plague column should not be omitted when you visit Pilsen. Have a look at the breathtaking details and elaborate structure. Definitely a must for each visitor to the city.

Beautiful and shinny column
Jul 2016 • Family
One of the landmarks in the Republic Square. The shinny Plague Column was very beautiful, and the background buildings were also very attractive. A very good place to take some photos and memories. There were some wooden benches nearby that travelers can take a good rest and enjoy the views.

It is a marvellous monument! Everyone should take a long look at it!
Jun 2016
Near the immense Cathedral, on Republic's Square, you will find, on a corner, one of the most beautiful columns you can ever imagine! With its guided details, its architectural statements and its own significance, you would go bananas with all the composition! It does not take central stage on the Square, but by God, it a monument not to be missed!
And a night, with that discreet illumination, it's even more of a landmark! Go and adore it :)

World UNESCO Heritage site

We traveled to Burno and decided to check out UNESCO sites along our way back to Vienna, Austria. We really enjoyed this stop for a very good espresso and a few pictures. The city center is lined with colorful homes and shops.
