Dolní Náměstí information
In Dolní Náměstí the 1661 church of Annunciation of St Mary (kostel Zvěstování Panny Marie) stands out with its beautifully sober interior. Its antithesis is the opulent 16th-century Renaissance confection, the Hauenschild palace (not open to the public). The square also sports its own Marian plague column (Mariánský morový sloup), and baroque fountains dedicated to Neptune and Jupiter.
