Since 1727 St. Nepomuk has been the patron saint of the Catholics from Banat. This fact explains his presence on the Blessed Trinity and St. Mary statues. The statue of St. John Nepomuk is found in the yard of the Romano-Catholic church from Iosefin. Nobody knows who its sculptor was, but it surely is the oldest statue of the town, almost 300 years old. St. Nepomuk is depicted with a cross in his arms. The statue has been posted in several places of the town. First, in 1720, it was placed in front of the Military Casino, but in 1752 it was moved in front of the Carmen Sylva high-school. Five years later it was placed to the Decebal Bridge, from where, in 1908, it was taken to the present Thermal Baths' area. It was moved in the yard of the Romano-Catholic church in 1932. Here it is enclosed and protected because it's strongly dilapidated
