Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Out of graditude for the end of the plague epidemic which struck the Czech Republic in 1681 the Municipal Council had this Marian plague-colomn built with a Gothic column replica of the Madonna of Plzeň (by Kristian Widman), a variety of Saint sculptures on its pedestal: Wenceslaus I, Duke of Bohemia, Bartholomew the Apostle, Saint Roch, Saint Florian and Saint Rosalia by sculptor Jan Mejzlík. After the last plague in 1714 these were accompanied by statues of Saints: Francis Xavier, Saint Barbara and Peter of Alcantara. The pillar was revised several times, most recently in 1990.

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.

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.

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.

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 :)

We traveled to Burno and decided to check out UNESCO sites along our way back to Vienna, Austria. We really enjoyed this stop for a very good espresso and a few pictures. The city center is lined with colorful homes and shops.
