To the right of the church we can find a beautiful blend of baroque and cubism. It is a baroque statue of StJohn of Nepomuk from 1723 in Cubist framing. It is generally considered that the Baroque and cubismresonate well with each otherThe House of the Black Madonna in Celetna street might be an example.
