  John of Nepomuk
by Frisbeeace

The history tells that the queen confesed her sins to this priest so the king tried to force him to tell him about them. He refused so he was tortured and killed tossing him from the bridge. It is said that 5 stars appeared when he hit the water (they are surrounding his head as a crown).

People make lines to touch the base of the statue as the legend says that your wish will come true but you only have one chance in your life.
