Olomouc

Holy Trinity Column

The Holy Trinity Column in Olomouc dominates the city centre and its grandiosity easily takes the visitor’s breath away. It is the largest group of Baroque statues within a single sculptural monument in Central Europe. The column reaches a 32 metres height and its lower part houses a seasonally accessible chapel. Since 2000 the Holy Trinity Column has been present on UNESCO World Heritage List.

The sculptural decoration comprises 18 stone sculptures of saints, 12 light-bearers and 6 relief busts of the apostles. The column is dominated by gilded copper sculptures of the Holy Trinity on the top and the Assumption of the Virgin beneath it. The overall sculptural decoration has a natural and harmonious appearance and is due to its uniqueness certainly worth attention.
