Konstanz played an important role in the Europe’s history. Back in XVth century, between 1414 and 1418, the Council of Constance took place there – the event mostly known for execution of Jan Hus (the same one whose monument stands proudly in the heart of Prague’s Old Town Square) and the 1500 prostitutes serving the event. Now, at the entrance to the harbor, the big statue of Imperia can be found. The monument commemorates the Council of Constance and its licentiousness. The 9 meters tall woman in very skimpy clothes holds Pope Martin V and Emperor Sigismund – main figures of the event. The statue is pretty unique as it’s the only monument of prostitute in the world – is it bad that I found it fascinating and just loved it?

But Konstanz is more than that! The Old Town is really lovely, in the typical nice German style. Colorful buildings, houses with shutters, tall churches, cobbled streets, numerous restaurants and the location at the shore of the Lake of Constance makes it the city I’d definitely like to come back to and spend more time discovering. Here’s a sneak peek to my short visit there
