Travel through time thanks to stories you'll hear combined with pre-war and post-war photographs and our Zuk retro minibus.

This column built in 1644 was destroyed by the Nazis, but fortunately the statue could be saved. A new granite column was built, but you can the old column just nearby.

The column was first erected in the mid 17th century in the Castle Square and survives to this day after being restored many times including after its destruction by the German Army in late 1944. It dominates the square and is a focal point for families and tourists who flock here, particularly in the evening.

When we are getting close to Old Town we notice this column at distance more than the church tower. It dates from 17th century but was destroyed and rebulit so many times there´s nothing more left from that period apart from the statue.
