Bronze memorial to J. W. Goethe

more than a year ago
The original statue of Goethe sitting on a bench was unveiled on the 15th of May 1932 on the occasion of the 100th anniversary of his death. Willy Russ of Krásno was its author.

The statue was destroyed during the Second World War. After the war, there was a stone bearing a plaque installed on the original pedestal, stating that Goethe's statue had been standing there.

Today's statue of Goethe, a masterpiece by the local sculptor Vítězslav Eibl, was placed on the original pedestal and unveiled in 1993.
