Sculpture of Saint Vojtěch, fellow saints, installed in St. Vitus Cathedral

Prague’s St. Vitus Cathedral has gotten a new group of statues depicting the saints Vojtěch, Radim and Radla. The idea for the statues goes all the way back to 1936. In 1947, a plaster version was installed. But the work was removed a year later when the Communists assumed power in Czechoslovakia.
