“A statue - so there... .”
Reviewed April 27, 2013

OK, I get it that Jan Hus is a local hero – I get it.
This impressive monument in the old town's square gives absolutely no information whatsoever about Hus' importance in the Reformation movement, which is truly unfortunate, as I am sure he deserves more people to know about him.

“Right man, right place!”
Reviewed April 24, 2013

This monument is devoted to the man who was ahead of his time with his ideas. As usual in the Middle Ages it finished the same...grievously. He wasn't an exeption((. The Church didn't want to lose its power(((

“Why so little info?”
Reviewed February 15, 2013

Of course the statue itself is marvellous, but why is there no info on what it is and who Hus was and what he stood for? Are we supposed to get this info by telepathy?

“Nice sculpture”
Reviewed February 3, 2012

Do a little research on the history of Jan Hus and it might be more meaningful
