Caption :
In 1938, a statue of M. R. Stefanik was raised on the site of Maria Theresia`s monument, including a pylon with the sculpture of a lion holding the state coat of arms. (A lion is the Czech statehood symbol). The author of the monument was the prominent Czech sculptor Bohumil Kafka. According to the original design four pillars and four lions should have been there. Originally the lion should have been looking at the Danube and the country border, but because of tense international situation the diagonal version was at the end opted for.
