  Brno / Brünn
by globetrott

On most of the squares in Brno / Brünn you will see great religious monuments like this column , that was built in order to memorize the end of the plague.

It is amazing to see, how many of such religious monuments have survived the communiste times and still look great after all these years.

It is a pity that only a few of the Art Nouveau-streetlamps are left over and were replace by this strange type on my picture.
In the back of my picture you may see the church of St.Jacob

Directions: This picture was taken at Freedom square / Namesti Svobody
