This large and stoic monument to Jan Hus sits in Prague's beautiful Old Town square. Hus was a Catholic priest and early religious reformer who predated Luther, Calvin and Zwingli. This impressive bronze monument serves as a reminder of Hus' attempts to reform the church.

What to say, its a monument, and a monumental one at that. This sigificance of Jan Hus to the history of Prague cannot be understated. As for the monument - it's present so it can only be 5stars

Stare Mesto (Old Town)

the medieval heart of Prague. It’s no surprise it is

square, overlooking Charles Bridge with Prague Castle
in the background, is probably the most beautiful
