“Nice fotos in the centre of Olomouc”
Reviewed November 28, 2012

It's situated on the Upper Square in the very centre of Olomouc. I was glad to spent nice time there strolling about - of course, the Holy Trinity column is impossible not to notice!))

“Big”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

Allegedly the largest plague column in the republic this was certainly the largest & most elaborate I have seen. Though rarely beautiful these columns have considerable social & historic interest.

“UNESCO World Heritage List , A Must See”
Reviewed September 1, 2012

Dominating the Upper Square, this magnificent monument was erected in 1716-1754 to thank God for delivering Moravia from the Plaque. Local Olomouc artists and craftsmen built this in the regional baroque style of the day (now called Olomouc Baroque) This 35 M high Column also has an inner chamber with carved reliefs. The Saints depicted on the monument are all related in one way or another with the town. It is fantastically beautiful and I suggest you look it up to really learn about all the depictions. It is quite impressive and after seeing it for awhile you feel like it is an old friend and landmark that shows you the way.

“As good as a column can be”
Reviewed August 4, 2012

It is well preserved. If you buy the Olomouc tourist card take the free audio guide and you will learn more about the column and other statutes around the old town.

“You'll pass by it anyway”
Reviewed July 25, 2012

Olomouc is nice and worth to spend a day in. You'll see plague column almost in every main city center in the Czech Republic and this one is definitely impressive among them, but I didn't find it an important attraction by itself. The thing is that if you're visiting Olomouc, you'll pass by it anyway :)
