A tulip with three blooms
The church of the Holiest Trinity is a hex central building from the years 1719 - 1720, to which two wings were adjointed in 1731. According to the legend the tulip with three blooms flowered in the dean garden, symbolizing Holy Trinity. This was the impulse to start building a church which is a beauty of the town park. At the well with magical water near the Church of Holy Trinity was built a triangular chapel of the Holy Cross later in 1761. According to the legend the water in the well was healing. From the chapel the stations of the Cross leads. Until these days only one Baroque station survived.

A funnel as a centre of Europe
In Havlíčkův Brod, next to the café “U Notáře“, can be found one of the possibilities of the centre of Europe – according to the Czech mysterious scholar Jára Cimrman. On June 29, 2002 at 1.20 pm the funnel symbolizing the centre of Europe according to Jára Cimrman was revealed. Its size is indirectly propotional to the greatness of the famous scholar’s thought: the greater the thought, the smaller funnel. Even though it is of respectable size of 3,20 x 2,50 m and has 500 kg. It is located in the town garden open to public in the street Sázavská No. 430/1. The author is art smith Martin Šteller. The centre of Europe in the form of a funnel enables to absorb all kind of energies just into this place.
