“Nice column”
Review of The Plague Column

Ranked #10 of 85 things to do in Pilsen
Attraction details
Reviewed 18 July 2017

The plague column was erected in 1681, to thank for not having a bigger epidemie. The top of the column is a copy of the famous Madonna of Plzen.

Possibly a bit hidden between the cathedral and the city hall, in one corner of the main square, this plague column should not be omitted when you visit Pilsen. Have a look at the breathtaking details and elaborate structure. Definitely a must for each visitor to the city.

Right behind the cathedral and few steps from the town hall. Nice historical column to remembering the hard times of Pilsen history.

One of the landmarks in the Republic Square. The shinny Plague Column was very beautiful, and the background buildings were also very attractive. A very good place to take some photos and memories. There were some wooden benches nearby that travelers can take a good rest and enjoy the views.

Near the immense Cathedral, on Republic's Square, you will find, on a corner, one of the most beautiful columns you can ever imagine! With its guided details, its architectural statements and its own significance, you would go bananas with all the composition! It does not take central stage on the Square, but by God, it a monument not to be missed!
And a night, with that discreet illumination, it's even more of a landmark! Go and adore it :)
