The coolest place in Bardejov to take a picture. The only known executioner statue I have ever seen. At one time in Bardejów there was a school of executioners and probably this profession enjoyed the adepts' interest.

You can’t miss this statue at the far end of the town square. Of course, you have to take a photo of it and create some fun photos of you on the executioner’s block. Definitely unique and worth seeing. The whole town is lovely, although...More

It was an important privilege to have a local executor in a town. This privilege was granted by emperor only to those most important and rich towns. That's why locals were proud to have own executor.

Great place to visit. It’s definitely a must if you are in Bardejov. The statue is at a great angle for shooting pictures. Also, there are several museums and restaurantes near by.

We did not see it at first, but rather while coming back from round tour. I wish I knew the story behind it.

For a statue it is quite cool. It is also nicely located amoung beautiful houses in the old market.Made of bronze and human size.

A quite unique bronze statue found in the medieval old town square of Bardejov in Slovakia. The statue is lifesize and lends itself to amusing photography as many a tourist//traveller has played the part of those about to be beheaded. Great fun!

Although once knowing what this means it would be scaring, it tells the story and fact in medieval. It is a meaningful educational statue.
