The Holy Trinity Column

Horní náměstí, 779 00, Olomouc


Basic information

The Holy Trinity Column in Olomouc is the largest group of Baroque statues within a single sculptural monument in Central Europe.

The column reaches a height of 35 metres and its lower part houses a chapel. The sculptural decoration is made of 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 larger-than-life figures are enveloped in light, airy drapery with lively expressions on their faces and corresponding gesticulations of their hands. The overall sculptural decoration has a natural and harmonious appearance without being exaggerated in the typically flamboyant and exaggerated Baroque mode.

Opening hours:
The Column’s interior is open in the period of April – September from 9am to 2pm
