THE TRINITY COLUMN – Malostranské square

Sloup Nejsv.Trojice

At the top of Malostranské Square, infront of the Church of St Nicholas, a monument was built in 1715 to commemorate the terrible plague which hit Prague in 1713-14. It was made by sculptor František Herstorfer according to a design by Giovanni Batista Alliprandi. The column is 20m high and is decorated with a statue of the Holy Trinity and the Czech patron saints. Three fountains around the column represent the sources of life, mercy and salvation.
