Entrance Statues monuments and memorials



The sculptural group of two women that seem to be passing each other is known as the Entrance Statues. This is the symbolic entrance to the “Lázně” (Czech for “spa”, i.e., into the town from the train station), but also to the spa (i.e., the baths). One woman is dressed in bathing gear, whereas the other has the gear draped over her arm. The nude woman turns in the direction of the street towards the train station, whereas the sights of the other are directed to the left, in the direction of the bend in the main street leading towards the town centre. The author, Václav Frydecký (1931-2011), used white Bulgarian limestone for the sculptural group.
