Prague 6 planning statue of Maria Theresa

The authorities in Prague 6 are planning to have a statute erected to the 18th century Habsburg empress Maria Theresa, who was also the queen of Bohemia. A spokesperson for the local town hall said it had issued a tender for the statue, which would stand in a new park located between the street Milady Horákové and the bastions of Prague Castle. Prague 6 has also launched a tender process for a sculpture of Sophie, Duchess of Hohenberg, the wife of Archduke Franz Ferdinand, who was from Bohemia.
