This monument was built for the people of the plague. Lovely to sit around and people watch having a ice cream.

It's really impressive and it stands in the middle of the main square where the Town hall is. You won't miss it while you walk through the city. The town seems very proud of it.

We went to see the column, and of course, it is beautiful. A very nice piece. However, it should be noted that using this as a starting point, you can see everything there is to see in the entire old town portion of the city.

Olomouc in general is very nice and historic city and this in only one of many nice locations and monuments. Located very close to all other attractions, shopping and restaurant option. In summer great sport to hang out.

a very interesting column in the main square of olomouc - try to go at a time when you can get a guide and even go inside (it's small but very interesting).

The Trinity Column is at the central location of Olomouc and among the best place to visit for people of all age (kids, young couples and senior citizens). Besides several beautiful artistic fountains, the astronomical clock, view from top of it and mayor building are appreciative.
