Saint John of Nepomuk (or John Nepomucene) [Czech: Jan Nepomucký; German: Johannes Nepomuk; Latin: Ioannes (or Ioannis) Nepomucenus (c. 1345 – March 20, 1393) is the saint of Bohemia (Czech Republic), who was drowned in the Vltava river at the behest of Wenceslaus, King of the Romans and King of Bohemia. Later accounts state that he was the confessor of the queen of Bohemia and he refused to divulge the secrets of the confessional. On the basis of this account, John of Nepomuk is considered the first martyr of the Seal of the Confessional, a patron against calumnies and, because of the manner of his death, a protector from floods and drowning.

=========================================================

Pozdne barokní pískovcové sousoší sv. Jana Nepomuckého se nachází na návsi pred kostelem ve Vinori a je ohrazeno nízkou betonovou zídkou. Hranolový sokl má vpredu tri schudky a po stranách volutová krídla, na nichž jsou dva andílci na oblaku držící kartuše (vlevo s Palladiem zeme ceské, vpravo s reliéfem sv. Václava). Svetec v knežském rouchu a plášti stojí uprostred na veliké rybe a sklání se ke své pravé ruce, ve které drží kríž. V levé ruce má zavrenou knihu a na ní biret. Uprostred soklu se nachází chronogram s latinským textem, z nejž lze vycíst rok 1755. Na bocních krídlech jsou také latinské nápisy.
