  • Sculpture in six centuries. It is difficult to even imagine what sparse bronze monument of St George (Socha svatého Jiří), kolbasjashhego sharp kopecom serpent evil, modestly rising in the third courtyard of Prague Castle (Tretí nádvoří Pražského hradu), dates back to the year 1373 up! It turns out that this monument no less, and coeval Serbedarskogo rebellion in Kerman or hike at Polotsk Skirgaila Dinaburg. Envision the reality for "throw in their side-Yes I know, I know that we now enjoy a copy of that most ancient creations! But give the same dream a little ... By the way, to be more precise, we have before us not just Memorial mentioned the Holy and a fountain-this creation is referred to in some tourist brochures.

" No, I am, of course, with respect to the original «symbiosis» quasi-Antique sculptures and modern circular "Fountain" of Jože Plechnika (Jože Plečnik), but still this Will suggests ... But let us return to St. George: a series of njetovskih sources in one voice to assert that this monument is the first equestrian sculpture in Central Europe. Believe the word! The authorship of the original (now stored in the lapidarium of the National Museum) is attributed to the sculptor brothers Martin and Jiří with Cluj (Martin (a) Jiří z Kluže).

  • Configuration which depicts the battle with the Dragon Knight in one of the squares of the City Castle. Sound planning, and combatants numbers bodies. Strictly speaking, this is not a Memorial, it is a symbol. Thanks to the combination that originated in the 16th century, medieval residents can be assured every day that good always overcomes evil.
