Remaining statues on Prague Castle plague column removed for repair

Restorers were on Tuesday due to remove the remaining statues on a Marian plague column on the main square in the Prague Castle complex. Three other statues were taken down at the start of the month. The decorations and the entire column, which is protected, are in a poor state and need to be repaired. The main work is scheduled to get underway this year with the monument expected to be returned to its former glory in 2016.
