One of the main landmarks in Olomouc neighbouring Archibishop's Palace is one of the most beautiful gothic buildings in Central Europe. Medieval history is crossing the nearby square where the last king from the Premyslid dynasty, Wenceslav III was stabbed in 1306. The Cathedral is within a short walk from the City center and is a must see.

This 115-foot-tall, early-18th-century structure is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
My Sunday morning visit was let down by a number of factors. There were buildings under renovation and covered by scaffolding, the road was dug up to relay tram tracks, it was bleak with cold temperatures and rain, and nothing was open. I would suggest by next Summer all will be well again. The column looks very intricate, but the detail was hard to see given the very dark colour.

Located in the large main square, this building towers over nearby Fountains. Added attraction is an interesting astronomical clock. There is a small information center where you can get a free map, an Olomouc stamp for you "tourist" passport, or use a computer. Few souveniers are for sale also.

This giant clock on the face of the town hall replaced the priceless original destroyed during WWII.

The title of my review says it all. Tucked away several kilometres off Olomouc, up on a hill, this famous Moravian monastery welcomes its guest with a splendid classical architecture, incredible baroque interior and the spiritual atmosphere.
Since it seems one of the most important pilgrimage destinations in Czech Rep., it might be difficult to find a parking slot, nearby. Despite potential logistics difficulties, it is a local must-see landmark, though. Go and pray, then!

I love the location of this church and it's architecture. From Olomouc's main square walk up Michalska street to the Church, cute little street. Inside the church you can climb to the top near the bell and get a great view of Olomouc. This church with it's 3 domes is a beautiful landmark. It's a Roman Catholic church and one of the most important landmarks of the city. The church, connected originally with the Dominican Order, was constructed in the 13th century and reconstructed to its current Baroque form in 1676-1703 by Giovanni Pietro Tencalla. When you leave the church, go out the front, turn right and right to walk down Univerzitni street to the wall of the city where you can walk down the stairs to the park for a nice walk along the city wall.

The zoo is just outside Olomouc, I got a taxi from the town hall and it was only 218kc with team taxi. You can also get a bus number 11 from the main bus station that will take you there very cheaply.
The views on the way up to the zoo are really beautiful. It was just over 100kc to get in and really worth the money.
The animal enclosure were really good you can tell a lot of money is being spent on it. All the animals seem happy enough. The signs are in Czech but they have animals printed on them, it's a bit of a maze I couldn't find my way back to the exit you sort of do a full circle but I couldn't remember which way I came in. All was fine I found someone who could speak english.
There are play grounds and picnic areas also there are several eating places around the zoo. Outside the zoo is another play area and a restaurant and stalls.
It can be a bit hilly in places but worth it for a nice walk out. Wear trainers or something comfy to walk around in.
I would definitely go again and would recommend it for a nice day out.
Olomouc is a beautiful place I really enjoyed my time there with so much to see and do.
