About Olomouc

Nestled on the Morava River, Olomouc is historically one of Czech Republic’s most important cities. The city functioned as the former capital of Moravia, before being stripped of its status during the Thirty Years War. Now, the ecclesiastical metropolis stands out as a symbol of the Republic’s heritage. It’s traditional Baroque styles are found in its many protected historical monuments, making it one of the most visually striking places in Czech Republic.

The Holy Trinity Column at the heart of Olomouc is the city’s biggest pride. Now a designated UNESCO Heritage Site, the 18th century Column, is regarded for its striking Baroque designs. The stunning astronomical clock is another unmissable marvel here.
