Really a beautiful landmark and unesco world heritage site.
Olomouc is worth a visit just for seeing this object.
There are many many more things to discover in this beautiful town.
Olomouc is beautiful!

I visited the column for the first time this year. I had been to Olomouc many times in the early 1990s but the column, like many places, had never been open. There is now a guide who explains the history of the column and really makes it come alive - he spoke excellent English. Congratulations to Olomouc for doing so much to really help visitors appreciate the unusual riches of this city. Italy, where I live, could learn a lot from this attitude.

Impressive workmanship and i think it is a UNESCO world heritage listed site. A good place to sit with an icecream and watch the world go by.

The Holy Trinity Column is very beautiful, however, it could use a bit of restoration. It's hidden gem is the tiny little chapel located inside. You wouldn't know it's there unless you're really looking. The column is also a very nice place to sit and people watch in the historic Olomouc city square.

I am living 8 min. walking from rhis monument.
The Holy Trinity Column in Olomouc Czech Republic baroque monument built in 1716–1754 in honour of God. The main purpose was a spectacular celebration of Catholic Church and faith, partly caused by feeling of gratitude for ending a plague, which struck Moravia (now in the Czech Republic) between 1714 and 1716. The column was also understood to be an expression of local patriotism, since all artists and master craftsmen working on this monument were Olomouc citizens, and almost all depicted saints were connected with the city of Olomouc in some way.
It is the biggest Baroque sculptural group in the Czech Republic. In 2000 it was inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List as "one of the most exceptional examples of the apogee of central European Baroque artistic expression".
It is placed on the Upper Olomouc square where it is visible from all sides being a target for turist cameras abd wonderment.
