Where the Czech...? #130

Does anybody know which town this church is in?

I have a photo of that same statue. And unless it's a common headstone, I'm going to say it's in Litomysl.

(My photo was from the other side of the hedge)

Very good SansIcarus. Quick too. I can see I'm going to have to dip back into my bag of difficult ones next week...

Noooooo!!!! This was the first one I could get in over a year!

That was quick. Hey Captain, today is the Feast of St. Joseph and back in Chicago, the Poles and Italians would celebrate with wearing red, mass, and pierogis (Poles not the Italians). It wasn't as popular and St. Pat's day, but beer wasn't involved. Besides being the name day for Josef, any Czech traditions on this feast day?

No that I know of, Mike; and looking out the window it seems to be business as usual here except the traffic is being unusually courteous up near the pedestrian crossing (must be a cop around the corner I can't see)...;-)

the statue is by Olbram Zoubek, isn´t it?
