Why locals love it

Because it is a little bit shock causing art piece created by Czech controversial artist, David Černý. The sculpture of Sigmund Freud is hanging above your head and from the distance it looks surprisingly realistic. so several people has already called for police to report danger.

Why you should visit it

The sculpture is localted pretty much downtown where you are surrounded by history and all those classic sights. This is a little "street art" refreshment along your way. Just find Husova street and look up. There will be a man - Sigmund Freud - hanging from a girder. The sculpture was installed in 1997 and its height is 220 cm.

Special tip

Sigmund Freud was born in Morava - eastern part of Czech Republic.

Didn't notice it myself. Almost walked by it if it wasn't for a couple taking photos.

I love this, it's almost a secret. You'll walk by without noticing it if you aren't looking for it.
