Hus Square well

During reconstruction in 2009, four arches forming a very irregular square ground plan were uncovered near the Holy Trinity Column.

Archeologists concluded that this reservoir had been used since the 16th century to supply water to the city, but was backfilled in the 19th century. Water supply to the well seeped in from surrounding rock fissures.

Today, the well has been cleaned out once again. The upper section of the well has been fitted with ornamental grating with sections of tempered glass, created by local blacksmith Petr Hartmann.
