Who participated in the work? the Holy Trinity Column
The whole monument comes from the workshop of the significant sculpturer Jan Oldřich Mayer and the two masons, František Wolfgang Herstorfer and Giovanni Battista Alliprandi were concerned, too. The complete project was realized by the last of the gentlemen.

What was behind its origin?
Like other plague colums also this one was created as an expression of gratitude for the fact that the plague epidemy in Prague during which many people died was over in 1713. The Lesser Town councillors got the column created in 1715, however some plastics were not added until the famine in 1772. The huge pedestal itself is made of sandstone and  reaches 20 metres high. The sandstone is decorated with black and red marble.

In her surroundings you can further see the figures of Bohemian patrons . There are images of St. Wenceslas, St. Adalbert, St. Ludmila, St. John of Nepomuk and St. Prokop here. The Godly Eye and a Dove, the symbol of the Holy trinity beneath it, are placed at the top of the column. Just to be more accurate, the Holy Trinity means the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. On the banister pedestal a line of tiny angel plastics is placed and each of them carries a certain board with a writing.

A curiosity
Among the matters of interest that the curious eyes of the tourists won´t overlook belong the little side fountains. Three of them contain the reservoirs The Sources of Life, Blessing and Salvation. So the water springs from the spouts into the tanks that look like lion heads.

  Tourist guide PRAGUE CITY LINE - Prague 1 (unknown)

Prague 1 still belongs to one of the most attractive parts of the whole Prague. Probably nowhere else you can find such a concentration of historic monuments and places where the history and romance of bygone times are all around you. Hardly anywhere you can walk on the same paths where were walking Franz Kafka, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, and the Golem of Prague.
