Jan Hus Monument in Old Town Square Prague

This is the Jan Hus Monument in Old Town Prague Square. Jan Hus was burnt at the stake after refusing to recant his reformist views, by the Roman Catholic Church. His death was seen as an outrage by the Czech people and was one of the catalysts that led to what would become known as the Hussite Wars.

The building in the background is the Palác Kinských, and it is home to part of the National Gallery (Národní Galerie). The National Gallery is not housed in a single building, but multiple buildings around Prague and the country.

  1. Great image! That building is beautiful!

  2. Looks like the building is a perfect piece of art to house even more art, Shelly Gunderson! :-)
