UNESCO - Holy Trinity Column In Olomouc, Czech Republic

This column, built in the 18th century for religious reasons, is an outstanding example of central European Baroque style. Its 35 meters high and its iconographic basis lies in the Book Of Revelation. The impressive gilded copper top shows the nominal Holy Trinity accompanied by the archangel Gabriel.
I have received both these cards within a few days, the first from a tag, the second a very thoughtful gesture from a dear postcrossing friend who even used a matching stamp - alas this one managed to get wet and damaged on its short passage from the Czech Republic :( I guess these things happen..! Thank you both laguna and Radim :))
