This is a column you see the first time you reach the castle square. It is not something special but this column dominated the square.

Nice center of activities before entering the old town. By itself its not that interesting a monument.

Everyone stops to see this column and probably the first pictures taken at the Old Town. It is quite large.

This was nothing special- just a column. It takes a minute to look at and is on the edge of the old town.

This column is right there in the middle of the Castle Square. It is quite large and quite tall. When we were there, there was a band of young musicians right at the base of the column singing for the people strolling about.
