375- The New Marian Column of Prague

Once time while overseas several years ago, I literally stumbled on the “Marian Column” in Old Town Prague. At the time it did not appear in any tour guides, nor promotional materials.

Intrigued, I researched the story of the Marian Column of Prague.

It’s history, long hidden behind the Iron Curtain, in a country that up to this day is considered one of the least religious in the world was brought back to the square in 2020.

The original Marian Column erected in 1850 was destroyed by radicals following WWI.

This new column has been brought back to the square by citizen who wish to thank the Virgin Mary for her love for the people of the Czech Republic
