Jun 2021
This baroque monument is standing in a nice park behind the theatre. It’s from 1723, after the plague-epidemic and it commemorates the victory over that terrible event. Unfortunatelly it’s actual now because of the pandemic COVID19.

The Plague Column
Nov 2019
The Plague Column or Immaculata is a Baroque plague column in Košice, Slovakia.
The column is situated in a small park and commemorates the gratitude to Mary for an end to the plague epidemic from 1709 and 1710. It was erected at the place of medieval gallows in 1723. Local legend holds that the relics of Saint Valentine are hidden beneath the structure.
It is a 14-metre-high (46 ft) column on a stone basement with sculptures of Saint Joseph, Saint Sebastian and Saint Ladislaus. There is a sculpture of the Virgin Mary on the top of the column. The sculptures of Saint Gabriel, Saint Elizabeth of Hungary, Saint Margaret, Saint Michael the Archangel and Saint Barbara are on the pillars of the fence.

Majestic Statue !
Oct 2019
It is an added city landmark. A statue with a story that stands tall in the middle of the city. Well-maintained garden surrounds it.

Striking monument
Oct 2019 • Family
I have not really read the history but only admired the statue and the stunning architecture of it. It is also located away from the Cathedral so that the monument has a space of it's own that just makes it stand out more - as well as highlight the beauty of it.

Memorial to Mary
May 2019 • Family
Located at the end of a small park near St Elizabeth's Cathedral is this ornate column which commemorates the end of the plague epidemic from 1709/10. Some may think the souls of the departed are rising to heaven as angels Local legend holds that the relics of Saint Valentine are hidden beneath the structure.

Very striking monument to the plague
May 2019 • Family
Very striking monument to the plague in the centre of the city. Very unusual in its depiction of the victims etc... and looking quite modern to contemporary eyes.

Good piece of sculptor

It feels like you are in a museum at this strip of road. Don't forget to check the kids like cupid and their heads all the way up of the monument.

A Very Pretty Plague Column
Sep 2018 • Couples
Unlike some plague columns in Europe that are dirty looking, dark and rather dull, this one is really bright, has great statues on it, a really lovely top and it is well worth stopping for a photograph. You can’t miss it...when walking on either side of the old town center, you will come upon it.
