Woodrow Wilson statue will stand in Prague again

Many statues of important personalities, that used to stand in the streets of Prague, have disappeared during the eventful history: some of them were destroyed after the break up of the Habsburg monarchy, some of them were removed by Nazis and some by the Communists. However, since 1989, the statues return slowly to their previous places. One of them is the statue of American president Woodrow Wilson, that will stand in front of Prague Main Railway Station again.

The Main Railway Station in Prague is also called Wilson Station. The statue, that used to stand there, was destroyed by the Nazis in 1939. It is planned to place it there again in 2009, when the current reconstruction of the railway station will be finished.

Rebuilding of some other statues is considered at the present: for example the Marian Column at the Old Town Square, which was destroyed in 1918, or the statue of General Radetzky at the Lesser Town Square, also removed in 1918.
