According to the Lonely Planet guide Secret Europe: "The most beautiful city in the Czech Republic".


The town's history can be felt at every step. Olomouc was previously the seat of powerful ruling families.

Today Olomouc is a modern metropolis of Moravia with a large student community, offering several excellent opportunities for relaxation and entertainment.

The grandiose churches and baroque fountains here alternate with romantic secluded corners. Towering above the pulsating square are the slim spires of the cathedral, churches and town hall, which together form a unique city panorama. The splendour of the superb palaces is heightened by the quiet charm of the cob- bled streets.

After the capital of Prague, Olomouc contains the largest concentration of remarkable monuments in the Czech Republic. Imposing features include the Holy Trinity Column on the Upper Square, entered in the UNESCO World Cultural Heritage List, or the unique town hall astronomical clock on the façade of the Olomouc Town hall. It is indisputably a rarity in worldwide
