The Plague Column is a beautiful statue located in the Main Square of Plzen, the biggest city it the West part of Czech Republic. It is a column to remember diseases and it is very beautiful. A thing to see, when you visit the Cathedral or see other beautiful buildings in the Republic Square.
(See also St. Bartholomew’s Gothic Cathedral, Renaissence Town Hall, Republic Square)

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.
