Plague Column

Kutná Hora‘s Baroque gem, the work of Jesuit sculptor Baugut, was built between 1713 and 1715 in response to the plague epidemic, during which more than a thousand people died in 1713. At the top of the column is a statue of the Virgin Mary Immaculate. As is typical for Kutná Hora, the plague column is also adorned with work motifs, this time in the form of sculptures of miners.
