What to See in Olomouc

Olomouc is an exploring sightseer's paradise. A good base camp is the main square, which is difficult to miss with its huge Town Hall and the Holy Trinity Column (the largest column in Europe), which was enscribed on the "UNESCO World Heritage List" in 2000.

It is the second largest historical square in the Czech Republic. Don't miss the astronomical clock on the Town Hall. It is said to once have rivaled the beauty of Prague's, but was rebuilt and repainted at the beginning of the Communist regime to reflect worker's values. The city has left it like this partially as a cold reminder of life under the Regime, and also because detailed accounts of exactly what it used to look like previously have been lost.

  • St. Wenceslas Cathedral, a thousand-year-old cathedral, boasting th tallest spire in Moravia, (second tallest in the Czech Republic) Pope John Paul II and Mother Tereza have both visited the cathedral and the holy relics of Saint Jan Sarkander are interred within.
  • St. Moritz church dates from 1398 and is a beautifully preserved gothic church. One of it's highlights is the massive Engler organ, one of the largest in Europe. The organ is the focus of the international music festival in September/October and the Christmas Music festival every year.
  • The University is spread throughout the city, but the majority of it is placed between the main square and St. Wenceslas. Also notable is the law campus on 17th. November avenue, which was formerly the headquarters of the Communist party.
  • St. Michael's, which appears worn and almost abandoned from the outside. Upon entering, however, most first time visitors find their breath stolen away. Inside is one of the most beautiful sacred baroque style churches in Central Europe
  • Basilica Minor on the Holy Hill (Svatý Kopeček). This is the site of one of the most popular pilgramages for Catholics in Central Europe, and was honored by Pope John Paul the Second. The best way to reach it is to take the bus 11 to Svatý Kopeček from stand 'E' in front of the train station
  • Fountains. The city council commissioned six of them built, and they are all within close walking distance of the Main Square. They are all based on Roman themes, and depict Jupiter, Mercury, Triton, Neptune, Hercules, and Caeser. There are also three remarkable modern fountains in Olomouc. The Arion's fountain in the Main Square and two fountains located near the Main Railway Station.
  • The archbishops palace.
  • Palace of the Czech medieval kings - the Premyslid dynasty.
