A double spiral staircase leading up to the top of the old bell tower as close to the sky as phisically possible in the baroque city center of Olomouc. It is a really poetic symbol.

St Moritz exterior isn't as imposing as other churches, but venture inside for a real treat. Don't miss climbing the bell tower. It's a steep, winding climb but the views from the top are worth the effort.

If you get a chance, hear an organ concert in this church like we did. That was a seriously impressive sound! Also, visit the church tower. After a scary and dizzying climb up you are treated to a great view of the city!

Built on the site of an earlier church that was destroyed by lightning in 1398, the church of St Moritz took a century and a half to complete and is one of the best examples of Early Gothic architecture in the Czech lands. Highlights are the stained... More
