Tábor’s Hus Square, which is generally called Husovy sady or a park near the railway station, began to emerge after 1871 – after the construction of the railway and the opening of the railway station in Tábor. At that time, the distance from the station to most of the camps in Tábor and the town gate was approximately 2 km. At the end of the 20th century, this was a more beautiful and airy face, which was completely built up over time. After 1991, the entire premises of the former c.k. tobacco factory from the late 19th century, in the city known as “Tobaccos” (after 1950 to 1990 barracks); the opaque fences and walls and the various “buildings and sheds” disappeared and the vast buildings were converted into workplaces of district offices, shops, and underground garages were built and landscaping of the surroundings was carried out. The ceremonial handover took place in November 1997. We can admire the great sculptural composition “Master Jan Hus” by the prominent Czechoslovak sculptor František Bílek at the entrance to Husovy sady – park from the city center – from May 9 (also reconstructed in 2005–2006). (1872-1941). The monument was built in 1927–1928 on the initiative of the Tábor Association for the Status of Hus Memorial and unveiled on 6 July 1928 (on the occasion of the 513th anniversary of Hus’s burning in Constance). It consists of two parts. On a high granite pedestal with the inscription “Flames moving towards the truth”, there is a bronze statue of Jan Hus in life-size (height 3 m). Behind it is a triangular granite monument with dimensions of 3 × 9 m. On the outside, five bronze reliefs, reminiscent of the events of Hus’s life, are attached to the granite blocks. At the head is a sculpture of Goat’s Castle, on both sides there are always two plates with dimensions of 90 × 200 cm – on the left there is a picture of Hus’s action on Kozi Hradek (“I preach between the fences which are called Goats” and “I preach in the woods under the linden by the castle”), on the right, Hus’s imprisonment and the beginnings of the Hussite movement (“I, the servant of God in chains” and “The emergence of God’s warriors”).
